Vanguard Adds Comprehensive Set of Bond ETFs

Vanguard has launched seven bond ETFs that provide investors exposure to several segments of the government, corporate and MBS fixed income markets.

The new ETFs carry a net expense ratio of 0.15% and, as is the typical Vanguard approach, are special share classes of funds that are also open to institutional and/or mutual fund investors.

The new ETFs include:

Vanguard Short-Term Government Bond ETF (VGSH)

Vanguard Intermediate-Term Government Bond ETF (VGIT)

Vanguard Long-Term Government Bond ETF (VGLT)

Vanguard Short-Term Corporate Bond ETF (VCSH)

Vanguard Intermediate-Term Corporate Bond ETF (VCIT)

Vanguard Long-Term Corporate Bond ETF (VCLT)

Vanguard Mortgage-Backed Securities ETF (VMBS)
