Vanguard Short-Term Inflation-Protected Securities ETF
When inflation increases, cold hard cash loses value. Generally, this means that traditional bonds also lose value. Why? Well the bonds' future cash payments have also lost value. This fund protects against this by investing in TIPS (Treasury Inflation Protected Securities), which automatically adjust value to track inflation.
