Intermediate-Term Bond ETFs


Most of these ETFs tend to invest in investment-grade bonds with a dollar-weighted average maturity of 3 to 10 years. While we think the diversification aspect of varying maturities offer by the group is attractive, there could be some rising interest rate concerns that pushes us to recommending this category more to moderate investors at this time, who understand the potential shift in interest rates may be sooner than investors are expecting.
