    Investors Love This Bond ETF

    With the Federal Reserve having cut interest rates twice this year and poised to cut some more, investors have the greenlight to pile into fixed income exchange traded funds and they are doing just that. Year to date, five of the top 10 asset-gathering ETFs are bond funds, a quintet that includes the iShares 7-10 Year Treasury Bond ETF (NASDAQ: IEF). IEF has an effective duration of 7.54 years, putting the fund in intermediate-term territory, making it suitable for investors that want more duration risk as the Fed lowers rates than is available on short-term bond funds.

    Get In The Middle With This Corporate Bond ETF

    As the Fed raised rates four times last year, short duration bond funds, including those in the corporate bond space, were popular with income investors. Now, with the Fed easing, investors can consider more duration while accessing added yield with the likes of the Vanguard Intermediate-Term Corporate Bond ETF (NASDAQ: VCIT). Home to $25 billion in assets under management and an expense ratio of 0.07%, the Vanguard Intermediate-Term Corporate Bond ETF is one of the largest and cheapest corporate bond ETFs on the market regardless of duration profile.

    Here Is A Groundbreaking Investment Idea For Hedge Fund, Fixed Income and Gold Investors

    Hedge funds aren’t what they used to be.

    Obvious Winners As Bond ETFs Gain More Assets

    In the first half of this year, fixed income ETFs saw inflows of $74 billion, including a staggering $26 billion in June alone, said CFRA Research Director of ETF & Mutual Fund Research Todd Rosenbluth in a note out Tuesday. Year to date, five bond ETFs are among the top 10 U.S.-listed ETFs in terms of new assets added and all five of those funds are iShares or Vanguard products. “While the asset manager is the US ETF industry heavyweight with $1.6 trillion in assets and a leading 39% market share, iShares is even more dominant in the bond asset class with a 49% share,” said Rosenbluth.
