Overview of FlexShares iBoxx 3-Year Target Duration TIPS Index Fund offerings
Targeted Inflation Protection: TDTT primarily invests in U.S. Treasury Inflation-Protected Securities (TIPS) with a targeted average duration of approximately three years. TIPS are designed to adjust their principal value based on inflation, potentially offering a hedge against rising inflation.
Moderate Maturity Focus: The fund focuses on TIPS maturing within a three-year timeframe, offering a balance between potential inflation protection and the effects of interest rate fluctuations. Shorter-term maturities can be less sensitive to interest rate changes compared to longer-term bonds.
Passive Management: TDTT tracks the iBoxx 3-Year Target Duration TIPS Index. This means it doesn't attempt to actively select or outperform individual TIPS, typically resulting in lower fees compared to actively managed funds.
Potential Income Generation: TIPS generate regular interest payments based on a fixed rate applied to the adjusted principal value, which takes inflation into account. This can provide investors with a potential source of income.
Exchange-Traded: Shares of TDTT are traded on a stock exchange like any other stock, allowing for easy buying and selling throughout the trading day. This provides flexibility for investors managing their portfolios.
Transparency: The holdings of the ETF are publicly disclosed, allowing investors to understand the specific TIPS they are indirectly invested in through TDTT.
