Summary

| |

Vanguard Short-Term Inflation-Protected Securities is a great choice as an inflation hedge for risk-averse investors. This fund is tough for active managers to beat because there is limited room for them to recoup their fees without taking additional risk. The fund’s exchange-traded fund, Admiral, and Institutional share classes are among the category’s cheapest, earning Morningstar Ratings of Gold, while its more expensive Investor share class merits a Bronze rating.
