iShares USD Treasury Bond 0-1yr UCITS ETF
The investment objective of the Fund is to seek to provide investors with a total return, taking into account both capital and income returns, which reflects the return of the ICE U.S. Treasury Short Bond Index.
The ICE U.S. Treasury Short Bond Index measures the performance of US Dollar denominated fixed income securities issued by the US Treasury that have a remaining maturity equal to or greater than one month and less than one year at the rebalancing date. The Benchmark Index includes investment grade bonds issued by the US Treasury that have a minimum amount outstanding of $300 million at the rebalancing date and for which content is available daily, including valuations and reference data. Inflation-linked securities, floating rate notes, cash management bills, any government agency debt issued with or without a government guarantee and zero-coupon issues that have been stripped from coupon-paying bonds are excluded from the Benchmark Index. The Benchmark Index rebalances on a monthly basis and is market capitalisation weighted.
