VGSH Factset Analytics Insight

VGSH is a popular, cheap T-bond ETF that tracks its index tightly with low volatility. VGSH mirrors our benchmark almost perfectly, since it tracks the float adjusted version of our benchmark. The fund and our benchmark have almost identical portfolio statistics including average maturity, duration and YTM. On balance, it is a very solid choice for market-like exposure. It attracts considerable daily volume with narrow spreads, and block liquidity is likewise strong for institutional investors. The fund charges a low fee and tracks its index exceedingly well, though the fund has made capital gains distributions in the past, so it bears some monitoring in order to avoid surprises.In the fourth quarter of 2017 the underlying index changed from Bloomberg Barclays 1-3 Year Government Float Adjusted Index to Bloomberg Barclays US Treasury Bond 1-3 Year Term Float Adjusted Index.
