Diversified maturities can help provide predictable income and liquidity
- Build a government bond ladder composed of U.S. Treasuries and based on the designated maturity range
- Monitor portfolio positions; no active trading unless warranted by client cash flow needs
- Maintain designated maturity of the ladder by purchasing new bonds at the longest available maturity in the range to replace those that mature or are sold as they reach the minimum maturity
