VGIT Factset Analytics Insight

VGIT provides exposure to the intermediate pocket of the US treasury debt market, excluding inflation-protected bonds. As such, it comes as no surprise that VGIT has a longer weighted average maturity, duration and higher yields. The fund is also more sensitive to changes in interest rates. VGIT's elevated duration might not appeal to investors looking to shorten their duration exposure, or who are looking to reduce interest rate risk. The fund uses a sampling technique, in which it holds a range of securities that has the same return and risk characteristics of the underlying index. Prior to Dec. 11, 2017, the fund tracked the Bloomberg Barclays 3-10 Year Government Float Adjusted Index.
