This includes investment in all medium and large-issue US government bonds, investment grade corporate bonds, and investment-grade international dollar denominated bonds. In particular, the BLV stock will invest client funds in bonds with maturities of more than 10 years and that are publicly issued. Around 80% of the funds’ assets will be invested in bonds, which are chosen through a rigorous selection and sampling process.
