Competitive Returns

The HIT-DVF seeks to provide fixed-income performance competitive with the investment grade bond market benchmark, the Bloomberg Barclays U.S. Aggregate Bond Index (Barclays Aggregate Bond Index).


Credit Quality

The HIT-DVF provides exposure to a debt portfolio with a higher combined percentage of high credit quality government or agency insured/guaranteed debt, AAA-rated debt, and cash than the Barclays Aggregate Bond Index.  See Portfolio and Performance.


Jobs, Housing and Competitive Returns

The HIT-DVF’s primary investment, the HIT, has a more than 30-year track record of financing affordable and market-rate housing, creating union construction jobs with good pay and benefits, and helping strengthen communities across the US. 


Daily Valuation

The HIT-DVF provides participants in 401(k) and other qualified defined contribution retirement plans with many of the benefits of investing in the HIT. 

At the same time, it provides daily valuation consistent with the liquidity needs of most defined contribution plans.
