Objective

The Bond ETF folio was developed for investors seeking income and conservative long-term capital preservation.

Strategy

The Bond ETF folio consists of ETFs that invest in a range of fixed income securities.

This folio provides the opportunity to invest in a diversified pool of fixed income investments that are less volatile than an investment in a single bond category. Fixed income securities can provide a source of income and also serve as a hedge against market downturns.
