GOVT Fund Description

GOVT tracks a market-weighted index of fixed-rate nonconvertible U.S. Treasury securities with a remaining maturity of one year or more.

GOVT Factset Analytics Insight

GOVT provides broad, vanilla exposure to U.S. Treasurys, making the fund an excellent gauge of the overall U.S. Treasury market. While the smaller basket’s exposure has detectable biases in the various maturity distributions, GOVT’s overall average maturity, duration, and yield all align well with our benchmark. GOVT charges a low fee, tracks its underlying index well, and has a solid asset base. These features combined with market-like exposure and solid liquidity make it a clear Analyst Pick for the segment. On July 1, 2016, GOVT began tracking the ICE U.S. Treasury Core Bond Index. The change does not have a material impact on exposure or performance relative to the Barclays U.S. Treasury Bond Index it tracked previously.

GOVT MSCI ESG Analytics Insight

iShares U.S. Treasury Bond ETF has an MSCI ESG Fund Rating of A based on a score of 6.70 out of 10. The MSCI ESG Fund Rating measures the resiliency of portfolios to long-term risks and opportunities arising from environmental, social, and governance factors. ESG Fund Ratings range from best (AAA) to worst (CCC). Highly rated funds consist of companies that tend to show strong and/or improving management of financially relevant environmental, social and governance issues. These companies may be more resilient to disruptions arising from ESG events.

The fund’s Peer Rank reflects the ranking of a fund’s MSCI ESG Fund Quality Score against the scores of other funds within the same peer group, as defined by the Thomson Reuters Lipper Global Classification. iShares U.S. Treasury Bond ETF ranks in the 83th percentile within its peer group and in the 95th percentile within the global universe of all funds covered by MSCI ESG Fund Ratings.
