US Treasury Ladder


Sticking With Uncle Sam

Investors turning to the bond-ETF market are looking for investments designed to keep a part of their portfolio relatively safe – and few assets are considered safer than US Treasury bonds, which are backed by the federal government and have been described by analysts and scholars as a comparatively stable investment.[2] Despite challenges in the US economy, the demand for Treasuries has stayed high, due in part to money-supply “easing” by the Federal Reserve and the US dollar’s implied status as the world’s reserve currency. This continues to lead foreign governments to buy up Treasuries with their foreign-exchange reserves.[3] This motif is built using a Treasury bond-ETF “ladder,” a strategy designed to increase diversification by using segments of bond ETFs with different maturity timeframes.
