A Strategy Focused on Staying Short
Typically, short duration bonds have been less sensitive to interest rate changes compared to longer duration bonds.
As such, the actively managed Franklin Liberty Short Duration U.S. Government ETF (FTSD) may be an attractive investment option if you are concerned about rising interest rates:
- Managed with a short duration focus of three years or less to help reduce interest rate risk.
- Portfolio managers have the ability to adjust duration positioning, sector allocation and security selection to actively take advantage of changing markets.
- A three year track record of attractive income compared to cash equivalents investments.1
