Bond funds for SIPP


I am new to the forums and this is my first post.
I am looking at starting my own SIPP (self investment personal pension for those of you who are not from the UK).

I want to start by first piecing in long government bonds. I am looking for some funds (low cost) to take advantage of lower bond prices.

Could anyone recommend some funds that track bond prices daily. I have been watching a few ETFS/ funds and have noticed that the prices do not reflect large moves in the bond market.

Thanks for your help.


Hi Trader 88888,

The most basic bond ETFs for US bonds are:

TLT for 20+ yr US Treasuries
TLH for 10-20 yr US Treasuries
IEF for 7-10 yr US Treasuries
TIP for TIPs

There are so many ways to track prices. One useful site is

for example:

Good luck!

Hi amuseing,

firstly thanks for the fast response.
Unfortunately I am based in the UK and my SIPP provider won’t allow me to trade TLT/TLH.
I am looking for bond funds (lower cost to trade).

I have however purchased some of this:
iShares $ Treasury Bond 20+yr UCITS ETF USD D

I believe it is very similar to TLT. However it is an ETF so trade fees are pretty big - My portfolio is currently small so fees eat up profits.

It is 0 initial costs to trading funds so I was wondering if any funds tracked bond prices.
