Most of these ETFs invest in invest primarily in corporate and other investment-grade U.S. fixed-income issues and have durations of one to five years. The ETFs in this category may be ideal for conservative investors who are not looking for long term interest rates-rising risk. While the returns are lower, the protection against being caught in long-term bonds when rates inevitably rise will make this particular class of bond investor sleep a bit better at night.
