This ETF offers exposure to Treasuries towards the longer end of the maturity spectrum, 10-20 years, presenting another tool to investors looking to fine tune their fixed income exposure. TLH probably doesn't belong as a core holding in a long-term portfolio, as most of the underlying securities are already included in broad-based funds such as AGG or BND. But for investors looking to lengthen the effective duration of a short-heavy fixed income section of a portfolio, TLH can be a very useful tool to enhance current returns by the addition of additional interest rate risk. TLH is efficient from a cost perspective, and offers sufficient liquidity as well. There are few funds offering identical exposure, though those seeking general access to long-term Treasuries can choose from a number of different ETFs, including VGLT and TLO.
The adjacent table gives investors an individual Realtime Rating for TLH 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 Government Bonds with the highest Metric Realtime Rating for each individual field.
