You could consider the iShares Lehman Aggregate Bond Fund (AGG), an exchange traded fund (ETF) managed by Barclays that "seeks investment results that correspond generally to the price and yield performance, before fees and expenses, of the total United States investment grade bond market as defined by the Lehman Brothers U.S. Aggregate Index." At 0.20%, the fund expenses are low compared to a traditional mutual fund. You can find more information on ETFs using tools such as the Fidelity Fund Screener (see Related Links).

An index fund is one that mirrors the performance of the underlying index. For example if there is an index fund based on the BSE Sensex, the investments done by the fund manager would be in exactly the same ratio as the % weightage of stocks in the BSE Sensex.
