IShares TIPS Bond ETF TIP is a solid choice for exposure to U.S. Treasury inflation-linked bonds. This fund is tough for active managers to beat because there is limited room for them to recoup their fees without taking additional risk. Although this fund maintains a cost advantage over most its peers, there are cheaper alternatives tracking the same index. It merits a Morningstar Analyst Rating of Silver.
