Short Duration Govt/Agency Merrill Lynch 1-3 Year Govt/Corp Index
The Merrill Lynch 1-3 Year Treasury Index tracks the performance of US dollar denominated sovereign debt publicly issued by the US government in its domestic market. Qualifying securities must have at least one year remaining to final maturity, a fixed coupon schedule, a minimum amount outstanding of $1 billion, and must mature in less than three years. The Barclays Capital U.S. Government Intermediate Index includes Treasuries and U.S. agency debentures that have remaining maturities of more than one year but less than 10 years. Both DBF returns and index returns reflect the reinvestment of dividends and other earnings. Indices are included for comparison purposes only and do not include transaction costs. Volatility, number of issues, capitalization size, year-to-year return history, and other security attributes of the indices differ from the attributes of the DBF portfolios.

- Valuations and returns are computed and stated in U.S. Dollars.

- All returns are net of trading commissions. Gross returns do not reflect the deduction of the management fees or any other expenses that may be incurred in the management of the account. Net returns are net of model management fees in effect for the respective time period and are derived using the maximum rate of the fee schedule. Actual returns may vary.

- The minimum portfolio size for inclusion in the composite is $2,000,000.
- Future returns will depend on future allocation decisions. Past performance is no guarantee of future results. The investment return and principal value will fluctuate so that when redeemed, investments may be worth more or less than the original cost.
- Any investment, including DBF’s portfolios, has the potential of generating losses as well as profits.
