It May Be A Good Time For Patriotism

The gloomy stream of headlines from Europe and the emerging markets – slowing economic growth, currency crisis – is enough to make any investor an isolationist. Fortunately, for US investors considering a boost to their fixed-income holdings, that means trading in the world’s largest and most liquid bond market. Federal government bonds are risk-averse, municipal bonds can offer tax advantages, and the bonds of corporations can provide a yield-return boost, to fixed-income portfolios. This motif is designed to provide exposure to the broad US bond market through ETFs holding state, municipal, and corporate bonds. The motif is also designed to reduce interest-rate risk, by including bond ETFs of diverse maturities. See more
