"Just scratching the surface of their potential," fixed-income ETFs could go to over $2T (from $302M now) in assets over the next decade, according to BlackRock (BLK), a major seller of the funds. Bond ETFs are transforming fixed income, allowing investors "a real-time tool for managing risk and exposure," without having to trade the underlying paper.

    To the contrary I think ETF's grant great exposure for people who could not access fixed income other wise.

     

    Steal your money? please.

     

    Do your homework. Ive owned and continue to own a number of BlackRock's EFT's and have done very well over the years.

     

    I usually look to BLK first for the exposure that I want.

    Sorry, should have looked to your bio first. You're 80% into precious metals. Obviously you know diversification through fixed income instruments.
