This ETF offers broad-based exposure to TIPS, bonds issued by the U.S. government featuring principal that adjusts based on certain measures of inflation. As such, IPE may have appeal as a minor allocation in a long-term portfolio, with increased weighting given if investors are particularly concerned about inflationary pressures. IPE is one of several broad TIPS ETFs; TIP, and TIPZ will offer up very similar exposure. This fund is competitive from a cost perspective and offers up excellent liquidity, making it worthy of consideration for any investors seeking exposure to this corner of the bond market. While TIPS have become popular as a means of protecting against inflation, it is noted that there are potential limitations to this asset class in accomplishing this objective as well. Short-term TIPS ETFs such as STIP or STPZ may be worth a closer look, as well as more creative alternatives such as CPI.
The adjacent table gives investors an individual Realtime Rating for IPE on several different metrics, including liquidity, expenses, performance, volatility, dividend, concentration of holdings in addition to an overall rating. The "A+ Metric Rated ETF" field, available to ETFdb Pro members, shows the ETF in the Inflation-Protected Bonds with the highest Metric Realtime Rating for each individual field.
