GOVT Factset Analytics Insight
GOVT provides broad, vanilla exposure to U.S. Treasurys, making the fund an excellent gauge of the overall U.S. Treasury market. While the smaller basket’s exposure has detectable biases in the various maturity distributions, GOVT’s overall average maturity, duration, and yield all align well with our benchmark. GOVT charges a low fee, tracks its underlying index well, and has a solid asset base. These features combined with market-like exposure and solid liquidity make it a clear Analyst Pick for the segment. On July 1, 2016, GOVT began tracking the ICE U.S. Treasury Core Bond Index. The change does not have a material impact on exposure or performance relative to the Barclays U.S. Treasury Bond Index it tracked previously.
