Overview of Vanguard Long-Term Treasury Index Fund ETF Shares offerings
Exposure to Long-Term U.S. Treasuries: VGLT primarily invests in U.S. Treasury bonds with maturities exceeding 10 years. These bonds are issued by the U.S. government and are generally considered low-risk investments due to the high creditworthiness of the U.S. government.
Potential for Steady Income: Long-term Treasury bonds typically offer fixed interest payments (coupons) semiannually, providing investors with a predictable stream of income.
Potential for Capital Appreciation: While not the primary objective, VGLT has the potential for capital appreciation if interest rates decline. When interest rates fall, the value of existing bonds with higher coupon rates can increase.
Passive Management: VGLT employs a passive management strategy, meaning it tracks the underlying index instead of actively selecting individual bonds. This approach generally results in lower fees compared to actively managed bond funds.
Diversification: By holding a basket of long-term Treasury bonds, VGLT offers diversification within the long-term U.S. government bond market, reducing the risk associated with holding individual bonds.
Lower Volatility: Compared to stocks and some other fixed-income assets, long-term Treasury bonds generally exhibit lower price volatility, making them suitable for investors seeking income and capital preservation with potentially lower risk.
