(March 2021)

Bond market investing hasn’t seemed so attractive recently as rates on even long-term government debt such as the 10-year Treasury hit lows of 0.318% nearly a year ago, but the yield curve is sloping upward and it’s time to move back into the bond market. For retirement investors, in particular, bonds offer safety and security at least at maturity, and for those looking to hedge, bonds gain in value as the tougher times hit the equity market. While young investors can bear swings in stocks, many don’t consider bonds to offer stability in tumultuous equity and employment markets. For investors getting closer to retirement, increasing bond/equity share is a no-brainer, but all investors can add some diversity to their portfolios. For growth-oriented investors international and corporate bonds ETFs like BND or BWX, income investors can look to inflation-protected securities like TIPS or ETFs like BLV, and short-term government debt is the answer for the most conservative.
