Steps to Create This Folio
- We constructed this folio through selecting ETFs that were defined as government bond ETFs by Morningstar. These ETFs invest mainly in bonds issued by the United States government and private corporations that operate under U.S. government charters such as Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.
- We then selected ETFs with low expense ratios that met certain volume, asset level and other requirements.
- We equally weighted each government bond ETF in the folio.
Number of Securities
The number of securities in this folio will vary.
If the characteristics of the Folio have changed substantially, the securities included may change. Also, corporate actions, such as a merger, or other events may cause changes to the securities held at any time. Your returns may deviate significantly from the values displayed here, due to many factors, including how long after a folio has been updated that you place orders to update your holdings. RTGs are updated using market data from multiple sources including Zacks Investment Research ( www.zacks.com ), International Data Corporation (IDC) ( www.idc.com ), and other suppliers.
