VCLT Fund Description

VCLT tracks a market-weighted index of investment-grade fixed-rate corporate bonds with maturities greater than 10 years.

VCLT Factset Analytics Insight

VCLT holds a broad portfolio of long-term investment-grade corporate bonds that almost perfectly captures the market as we see it. Like all long-term bond funds, it is highly sensitive to long-term interest rates, but its high weighted-average credit rating means that its credit risk is very small. Overall, if you're looking for long-term investment-grade corporate debt exposure, it's hard to beat VCLT. For its segment, VCLT is highly liquid, though it struggles at the institutional level with the same elevated block trading costs that define the fixed-income sector. It's also a very Efficient fund, with a low expense ratio for its segment, though its tracking varies. It's worth noting that it has paid capital gains in the past, though its recent performance in this area is better. Overall, VCLT earns our "Analyst Pick" due to its low cost, decent liquidity, and comprehensive exposure to the broad long-term investment-grade corporate bond market.
