Treasury ETF Overview

Treasury ETFs hold U.S. government debt instruments of varying maturities. They also provide low-cost access to different key points of the yield curve or to the entire yield curve, depending on the fund. These ETFs often have lower yields than riskier bonds, but they are fully backed by the credit and taxing power of U.S. government.
