Looking quickly and without all my materials at hand the closest thing I find is the Fidelity Freedom series.
There used to be fixed-maturity bond funds I think through Burger. They may have matured.
Currently I'm having good results with the closed-end funds, and am happy to have part of my return be long term capital gains as the discount goes away. As long as you have a deep discount broker, the trading costs aren't excessive. The management fees on those are however more than you would expect for a comparable open-end fund. For the closed ends, of course there isn't a prospectus available.
This weekend I'll look into this further.
Best wishes, Chris
