Summary

| |

IShares U.S. Treasury Bond ETF is a solid option for exposure to the full U.S. Treasury yield curve. It boasts a market-value-weighted portfolio that is representative of this investment opportunity set with minimal costs. Indexing is a sensible approach for investing in the Treasury market because it is extremely liquid and relatively homogenous. Active strategies struggle to consistently find and exploit mispricings among Treasury bonds. Cheap access to bonds along the full Treasury curve became even cheaper after the fund cut its fee to 0.05%, lifting its Morningstar Analyst Rating to Silver from Bronze.
