Fidelity's short duration bond funds
Short duration bond funds may be an option for investors that are concerned about rising interest rates or who are seeking a higher level of income compared to other short-term investments.
Short-term bond funds invest primarily in corporate and other investment-grade U.S. fixed-income securities and generally have durations1 of one to three and a half years. These portfolios can be attractive to more conservative investors because they are less sensitive to interest rate volatility than portfolios with longer durations.
Fidelity offers several investments options that provide exposure to short-term bonds, as part of an overall diversified portfolio.
