Overview of PIMCO 1-5 Year U.S. TIPS Index Exchange-Traded Fund offerings
Targets Short-Term Treasury Inflation-Protected Securities (TIPS): STPZ invests in U.S. government bonds known as TIPS with maturities of at least 1 year and less than 5 years. These bonds are designed to protect against inflation by adjusting the principal amount based on inflation.
Potential for Inflation Protection: As inflation rises, the principal value of the underlying TIPS in STPZ increases, potentially offsetting the purchasing power decline caused by inflation.
Lower Interest Rate Risk: Compared to longer-term bonds, shorter-term TIPS like those held by STPZ tend to be less sensitive to interest rate fluctuations. This can offer more predictable returns, especially in volatile interest rate environments.
Government Guaranteed: The principal and interest payments of TIPS are backed by the full faith and credit of the U.S. government, offering a high degree of safety.
Regular Interest Payments: The underlying TIPS in STPZ typically make semi-annual interest payments, providing a potential source of income for investors.
Exchange-Traded Fund Structure: STPZ trades like a stock on the NYSE Arca exchange, offering investors easy buying and selling with good liquidity.
