Vanguard U.S. Treasury 0-1 Year Bond UCITS ETF
The Vanguard U.S. Treasury 0-1 Year Bond UCITS ETF (USD) Acc aims to track the Bloomberg Barclays Short Treasury Index. In seeking to achieve its investment objective, the Fund aims to provide a return (comprising both income and capital appreciation) which, before application of fees and expenses, is similar to the return of the Index. The Fund employs a “passive management” – or indexing – investment approach, through physical acquisition of securities, designed to track the performance of the Index. The Index is designed to reflect the universe of publically-traded, fixed-coupon, US Dollar-denominated US Treasury securities with maturities less than one year. The Index includes US Treasury bills, notes and bonds with remaining maturities between one month and one year.
Vanguard was launched in the United States in 1975 on a simple but revolutionary idea that an investment company should have no outside owners, and therefore, no conflicting loyalties. In 1976, Vanguard pioneered the concept of indexing, introducing the first index fund for individual investors in the United States. Over the decades, Vanguard has grown to become one of the world’s largest investment management companies, with a presence in the US, Australia, Europe, Asia and the Americas. Vanguard was the first company to launch a widely available index fund for retail investors. In 1986, the firm also became the first asset manager to launch a bond index fund. Vanguard’s business has grown from providing a handful of mutual funds nearly 45 years ago to now offering clients access to a diverse range of investment products globally. Vanguard has helped millions of institutional and individual investors meet their goals, and their core philosophy of treating clients fairly and giving them the best chance for investment success has never faltered. As Vanguard continues to grow, they will always remember that doing what is best for their investors has been the root of their — and their clients’ — continued success.Website: global.vanguard.com
