BIV Fund Description

The Vanguard Intermediate-Term Bond Fund tracks a market-weighted index of the entire investment-grade fixed-income market with maturities of 5-10 years.

BIV Factset Analytics Insight

BIV is an intermediate-term bond ETF that adopts a slightly more stringent definition of "intermediate" by excluding bonds with maturities of under 5 years and over 10. This sets it apart from both its competitor, GVI, and our benchmark, both of which have broader interpretations of intermediate-term bonds. As such, BIV has a longer average maturity and a slight bias toward lower-rated corporate bonds. Nearly the whole portfolio is in bonds expiring between 5-10 years, compared with about one third for our benchmark. It boasts high secondary liquidity, but its block liquidity suffers in comparison to competitor GVI. BIV lands on our Opportunities List with a hefty asset base and low expense ratio in addition to its novel coverage, though it suffers in terms of transparency thanks to Vanguard's monthly disclosure practices.
