Looking to trade some US Treasury Bond ETFs? Then you've come to the right place. Compiled especially for you, a full list of U.S. Treasury Bond ETFs (some are also built upon TIPS funds).

Treasury ETFs are issued and backed by the US Government and tend to have less risk than corporate bonds. They have durations that range from weeks to 30 years, make semi-annual interest payments, and are taxed on the federal level. They are initially bought through an auction, and prices for bonds can range from $100 to $5 million.

Key Takeaways

  • Exchange-traded funds can consist of U.S Treasuries for investors that need exposure to the bond market.
