Best Fit Treasury Inflation Protected Securities

These ETFs are supposed to provide protection against inflation because the principal of the bond increases with inflation as tracked by the Consumer Price Index (CPI). TIPs pay interest twice a year at a fixed rate. They are considered some of the safest investments available because they are backed by the U.S. federal government.

All ranked ETFs meet our Best Fit criteria.
