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, SCHP may have appeal as a minor allocation in a long-term portfolio, with increased weighting given if investors are particularly concerned about inflationary pressures. SCHP is one of several broad TIPS ETFs; TIP, and TIPZ will offer up very similar exposure. This fund is very competitive from a cost perspective but is not nearly as liquid as some of the other funds in the Category. However, its superior expense ratio should more than compensate investors for this making SCHP a decent choice 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 forth a closer look, as well as more creative alternatives such as CPI or other 'alternative' ETFs.
The adjacent table gives investors an individual Realtime Rating for SCHP on several different metrics, including liquidity, expenses, performance, volatility, dividend, concentration of holdings in addition to an overall rating.
