Global Bond ETFs

Most of these ETFs invest in bonds from around the world. These include bonds issued by governments, as well as corporate bonds. Depending on the ETF, there may be a preference in terms of time to maturity as well as desired yields. Many ETFs also attempt to take advantage of changing interest rates and currency values to improve returns. While bonds tend to attractive to conservative investors, we could be setting up for a change in interest rate direction, making this category a bit more uncertain as we look ahead. For now, we view this category as better suited for moderate investors who understand there is some risk associated with the group.
