Although all investments pose some risks, the following money market ETFs are relatively safe option for investors: the iShares Short Treasury Bond ETF ( SHV), the iShares Short Maturity Bond ETF ( NEAR), the SPDR Barclays 1-3 Month T-Bill ETF ( BIL) and the Invesco Ultra Short Duration ETF ( GSY).
