IMPORTANT NOTE: We are intentionally adding foreign currency risk here; do not consider a high-yield (low credit grade), a dollar-hedged foreign, or an emerging markets bond fund if BWX isn't available to you. BWX is pricey for an index fund (0.50%) but is NTF at TD Ameritrade and trades with more volume than iShares International Treasury Bond (IGOV), the closest cheaper (.35%) alternative. Investors buying larger positions ($25k+) should consider (IGOV) with a limit order. Non-ETF alternative: American Century International Bond (BEGBX) - NTF and 0.80% expense ratio.

IMPORTANT NOTE: The longest duration and lowest credit risk fund you can buy because it is made up of zero-coupon government debt. This fund is here primarily because in a bad recession, one in which interest rates plummet and defaults rise (and stocks fall), EDV can go up 50% or more, and yet is a viable low-cost longer-term holding.

IMPORTANT NOTE: This fund is also available as a super cheap (0.12% expense ratio - just like the ETF) admiral class open-end fund: Vanguard Mortgage-Backed Securities Index Fund Admiral Shares (VMBSX), with a $10k minimum. For those that can make the $50k minimum, Vanguard GNMA Fund Admiral Shares (VFIJX) is a slightly more volatile (higher duration/higher yield) choice. Vanguard GNMA Fund Investor Shares (VFIIX) is a good $3k minimum alternative.
