VGLT Fund Description

The Vanguard Long-Term Government Bond ETF tracks a market weighted index of fixed income securities issued by the U.S. Treasury, excluding inflation-protected bonds, with maturities of at least 10 years.

VGLT Factset Analytics Insight

Note: Vanguard will change VGLT’s underlying index in the fourth quarter of 2017 from Bloomberg Barclays Long Government Float Adjusted Index to Bloomberg Barclays US Long Treasury Bond Float Adjusted Index. This change will remove the fund’s exposure to agency debt (about 4% of VGLT), and could result in a year-end capital gains distribution.

VGLT has a highly marketlike portfolio of long-duration government debt that can be accessed fairly by retail investors and institutions. The fund mirrors our benchmark with near perfection, resulting in almost identical portfolio maturity, duration and YTM statistics. In all, VGLT is a solid choice for those seeking neutral market-like exposure to long-term government bonds. In terms of retail liquidity, VGLT has enough volume for buy-and-hold investors, and even active traders will find generally small spreads. Since it holds a basket of liquid US Treasurys and agency debentures, block trades should also be easy and fair too. Charging a very low fee, and tracking its index very closely (though less consistently than we'd like), VGLT is a cheap way to get exposure to the long-term government debt segment.
