VGIT Fund Description

The Vanguard Intermediate-Term Treasury Index ETF tracks a market weighted index of fixed income securities issued by the U.S. government, excluding inflation-protected bonds, with maturities of 3-10 years.

VGIT Factset Analytics Insight

Vanguard will change VGIT’s underlying index in the fourth quarter of 2017 from Bloomberg Barclays 3-10 Year Government Float Adjusted Index to Bloomberg Barclays US Treasury Bond 3-10 Year Term Float Adjusted Index. This change will remove the fund’s exposure to agency debt (about 3% of VGIT), and could result in a year-end capital gains distribution.

VGIT is a cheap retail option for exposure to the intermediate pocket of the US government debt market. VGIT doesn't exactly Fit our benchmark, since our benchmark includes the short end of the curve that VGIT excludes in its pursuit of the intermediate part of the curve. As such, it comes as no surprise that VGIT has a longer weighted average maturity, duration and higher yields. The fund is also more sensitive to changes in interest rates. VGIT's elevated duration might not appeal to investors looking to shorten their duration exposure, or who are looking to reduce interest rate risk. VGIT has liquidity in spades, trading in robust volumes on a daily basis across modest spreads. Institutions are also likely to find straightforward execution for block trades. VGIT charges a very reasonable fee for its exposure, but while the fund generally tracks in line with its fee, there can be a lot of volatility over the course of that ride.
