Analyst report

  • Many may find the significant allocations to MBS and Treasuries somewhat insufficient for their return objectives; increased corporate bond exposure through LQD may result in a better balance and more attractive return
  • AGG is unmatched in terms of liquidity, but investors can achieve similar exposure at a lower cost
  • BND and LAG both seek to replicate the same benchmark but charge lower expense ratios
  • For investors looking to avoid compounding costs and tracking error, the broad-based BND may be a better option for U.S. fixed income exposure
