tips/tips fund

trying to make up my mind which is the best way to go for my AA. I thought we had a previous thread on this issue but I have been unable to find it.

What would be the advantage (if any) of owning individual tips vs. a tips fund or visa versa ?

Re: tips/tips fund

The same as any other bond fund. You can buy them and hold them to maturity ignoring the fluctuations in between if you so choose.

Also buying the bonds is a little cheaper, and you have better control of the maturity and duration.
