GBF Fund Description

GBF tracks a market-value weighted index of US Treasury, agency, and investment grade corporate bonds, excluding securitized debt instruments.

GBF Factset Analytics Insight

GBF is the only one-stop option available that excludes securitized debt from a broad-market allocation to investment-grade US debt. The reweighting of the remainder of the US bond market pumps up GBF's exposure to Treasurys and corporate debt, which together make up over 80% of GBF's assets. Tracking the same index as our benchmark, GBF delivers near-perfect exposure to the space in terms of portfolio weighting, yield, credit rating, and duration. It can be traded with some care, though liquidity is somewhat light and spreads can be sizeable. Block trading, on the other hand, looks to be easy and inexpensive. With a reasonable fee and tight tracking of its index, GBF delivers its exposure in a nicely Efficient package.
