Fund Description

The Vanguard Total International Bond Index Fund Admiral Shares (VTABX) provides exposure to investment-grade debt securities issued by developed-market governments or corporations. These include government, agency, corporate and securitized non-U.S., investment-grade fixed-income investments, all issued in currencies other than the U.S. dollar. The fund hedges its currency exposure using futures contracts. VTABX is passively managed and tracks the Barclays Global Aggregate ex-USD Float Adjusted RIC Capped Index (USD Hedged).

As a low-cost index fund covering the entire U.S. investment-grade bond sector, VTABX is a great core offering for investors. The fund is internally managed by Vanguard.
