I-bonds look decent right now for fixed income category of my networth. I'm thinking of putting a bunch into I-bonds. I have been using FNBO for many years now, which is 0.85%APR savings at the moment.

Can you elaborate on this, please? I hear a lot of people mentioning I-bonds as a part of their portfolios. Are they just a substitute for holding some type of bond fund?
