Investment management juggernaut Vanguard announced Tuesday that it would change target benchmarks of its three government bond index funds and ETFs to pure Treasury indexes. The Vanguard Short-Term Government Bond Index fund and ETF (VSBSX/VGSH), Intermediate-Term Government Bond Index fund and ETF (VSIGX/VGIT), and Vanguard Long-Term Government Bond Index fund and ETF (VLGSX/VGLT) will switch to the Bloomberg Barclays US Treasury Float adjusted indexes in the December-end quarter this year and be renamed. The changes in names are basic, replacing "government" with "treasury." In an emailed stated Vanguard chief investment officer Greg Davis said: Following the transition, the funds will offer investors pure exposure to discrete segments of the U.S. Treasury market and provide them the flexibility to tailor their bond portfolios to reflect their risk and return objectives.
