BNDX - Vanguard Total International Bond ETF

Vanguard Total International Bond ETF logoVanguard Total International Bond ETF (BNDX) is an exchange-traded fund that tracks the performance of the Bloomberg Barclays Global Aggregate ex-USD Float Adjusted RIC Capped Index, which is a broad-based index that measures the performance of investment-grade, non-U.S. dollar-denominated fixed-income securities.

BNDX is designed to provide investors with exposure to the global bond market, including government, corporate, and securitized debt issued by issuers in developed and emerging markets outside of the United States. The fund invests in bonds denominated in a variety of currencies, including the euro, Japanese yen, British pound, Canadian dollar, and Australian dollar.

The ETF has a low expense ratio of 0.09%, making it a cost-effective way for investors to gain exposure to international fixed income markets. BNDX has a duration of approximately 7 years and a yield to maturity of around 0.5%, as of March 2023.

Investors who are looking to diversify their fixed-income portfolio beyond the U.S. bond market may consider adding BNDX to their portfolio. However, it is important to note that international bond markets can be volatile and may be affected by factors such as currency exchange rates, interest rate fluctuations, and economic and political developments in foreign countries. As with any investment, it is important to conduct thorough research and consult with a financial advisor before making any investment decisions.
