Review Of The New Vanguard Short-Term Inflation-Protected Securities Index Fund

Sunday, October 21, 2012 - 2:07 PM
Vanguard has recently launched the Short-Term Inflation-Protected Securities Index Fund which invests in short-term Treasury Inflation-Protected Securities (TIPS). According to this Vanguard fund announcement:
The Short-Term Inflation-Protected Securities Index Fund was developed for investors seeking inflation protection with the potential for less volatility than other inflation hedges, including stocks, longer-term TIPS, gold, and REITs.

There's a good discussion of the pros and cons of this new fund in this Bogleheads thread.
