June 1st 2017 Update: The F-Fund’s risk reward ratio is still too high. As it reaches previous highs posted a year ago it is just as likely to suffer a steep drop as it did in November.
The F Fund’s investment objective is to match the performance of the Barclays Capital U.S. Aggregate Bond Index, a broad index representing the U.S. bond market. The F-Fund excels when interest rates are falling. Interest rates have been in a gradual decline since 1981 and are currently near all time lows. If rates begin to rise again the F-Fund could suffer.
