VGSH Factset Analytics Insight

VGSH is a well-known T-bond ETF. The fund mirrors the float-adjusted version of its benchmark, thus the fund and its benchmark have almost identical portfolio statistics including average maturity, duration and YTM. VGSH includes short-term US treasury securities including bullet, putable, sinkable/amortizing and callable bonds as well as original issue zero coupons. The fund excludes securities that are separate trading of registered interest and principal securities (STRIPS) as well as certain special issues, such as state and local government series bonds (SLGs) and inflation-protected securities. 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.
