Vanguard launches short-duration global bond tracker

Vanguard launches short-duration global bond tracker

Vanguard has added to its fixed-income range with a short-duration bond tracker.

The Vanguard Global Short-Term Bond Index fund will follow the Barclays Global Aggregate 1-5 Years ex-US MBS Float Adjusted Bond index, which spans global government and investment-grade bonds.

‘Not only do global short-term bonds provide stability and diversification, they also play a valuable role in protecting the downside risk of portfolios,’ commented Axel Lomholt, head of product for Vanguard’s international business.

The fund will have a total expense ratio of 0.2% for the Sterling share classes, and will be managed on a hedged basis to help reduce currency volatility.
