VCSH Fund Description

VCSH tracks a market-weighted index of investment-grade, fixed-rate corporate bonds with maturities between 1 and 5 years.

VCSH Factset Analytics Insight

VCSH defines "short-term" bonds as bonds that mature within the next 1 to 5 years. This definition extends beyond our benchmark’s 1- to 3-year coverage, but is still a reasonable take on the short-term space. Not surprisingly, VCSH has a weighted average maturity that’s typically about 1 year longer than our benchmark’s. It usually has a higher effective duration too, meaning it’s more sensitive to changes in interest rates. For those willing to bear added interest-rate risk in search of higher yield, VCSH gets it done with very low holding and trading costs.
