Fund Description
The Vident Core U.S. Bond Strategy ETFTM (VBND) seeks to track the performance of the Vident Core US Bond IndexTM. We believe this index strategy is an innovative alternative to common debt indexes, which can sometimes be overexposed to the largest debtors. Concentrated positions in bonds backed by the U.S. can result in significant duration risk and the potential for negative real returns in a rising rate environment.
