Vanguard has a short-term treasury fund and a short-term federal fund,which I think is also treasuries.Can anyone tell me what the difference is,and why you would invest in one fund over the other.Thanks.
If you look at the fund information pages on vanguard you can examine their duration, holdings, etc. They are very similar and personally I would have no problems using them interchangeably if I wanted a short-term gov bond fund. The main difference appears that one has 15% gov mortgage backed securities and the other has 5%.
