Bond ETF Overview

Bond ETFs were first introduced in 2002, and since then, investors have poured more than $300 billion in assets into those ETFs. But bond ETFs aren't a one-to-one swap for bonds. The ETF wrapper introduces key differences, which makes these investments behave in unexpected ways. This channel is designed to help you understand bond ETFs and how they work, keep you up-to-date on the latest bond ETF news, and find the right bond ETFs for your portfolio.
