A Bond ETF Portfolio from Kiplinger

Kiplinger’s Laura Cohn recently wrote about the rising popularity of Bond ETFs and shared a diversified portfolio of five of her favorite exchange traded funds.

The portfolio includes:

25% iShares Barclays 1-3 Year Credit Bond (CSJ)

25% SPDR Barclays Capital International Treasury Bond (BWX)

20% iShares iBoxx $ High-Yield Corporate Bond (HYG)

15% iShares Barclays 1-3 Year Treasury Bond (SHY)

15% iShares Barclays TIPS (TIP)

According to Cohn, high income investors should scale the allocation to HYG back to 10% and add:

10% iShares S&P National AMT-Free Municipal Bond Fund (MUB)
