ETFs Bonds


I’m pretty new to investing so would like some help (not advice) on choosing ETFs bonds.

Basically a bit of education from you experienced guy’s and girl’s out there.

I didn’t invest in any bond ETF’s in my first few years, but have since learnt about them!

You can classify them between:

  • Government (Treasuries for US, GILTS for UK) or Corporate. Government being the larger Market and lower risk
  • Developed or Emerging market, developed being lower risk
  • The length of term on the bonds, with short dated being lower risk
  • Currencies and whether it’s hedged / unhedged
  • Some can be inflation linked, which basically hedges against the impact of inflation

Taking account of the above categories the KIDs and risk ratings shown can give some insight…


Thanks for your input much appreciated.
