VGIT Fund Description

VGIT Factset Analytics Insight

VGIT is a cheap retail option for exposure to the intermediate pocket of the US treasury 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.

Prior to the fourth quarter of 2017 the ETF tracked the Bloomberg Barclays 3-10 Year Government Float Adjusted Index.
