Pretty much.


Supposedly, we small-fry retailer investors get screwed over when we try to buy corp bonds directly.
In my vp, I have experimented with;
A) zero-coupon treasury bonds
B) Google and GE Bonds
and
C) VCIT (mentioned above).

This is all in tax-sheltered accounts, which are kind of small and (A) and (B) are mere nibbles.

This guggenheim product line is not cheap, but I suppose it's a nice way to replace (B) above without getting screwed on the price.
