The investment seeks to provide a high level of total return (consisting of reinvestment of income with some capital appreciation). The fund operates as a fund of funds. It generally invests: between 55% and 95% of its assets in fixed-income funds, and less than 40% in any one fixed-income fund; between 5% and 45% of its assets in equity funds, and less than 30% in any one equity fund; and less than 20% of its assets in specialty funds, and less than 20% in any one specialty fund.
The investment seeks current income; the fund also considers the potential for capital appreciation. The fund invests in a selection of USAA mutual funds (underlying USAA Funds) consisting of a target asset class allocation of approximately 20% equity securities and 80% fixed-income securities. This is often referred to as a fund-of-funds investment strategy. The actual asset class allocation can deviate from time to time from these targets as market conditions warrant. It may invest in investment-grade and below-investment-grade fixed-income securities.
The investment seeks to manage against capital risk and generate income with a secondary goal of pursuing long-term capital growth. The fund is designed to generate income, pursue capital growth in order to provide purchasing power protection, and to manage risk. It may invest in a combination of the Core Bond Series, Disciplined Value Series, Equity Income Series, Global Fixed Income Series, High Yield Bond Series, Real Estate Series, and Unconstrained Bond Series, as well as other Series of the fund.

The fees, balance and savings information above are estimated numbers, based on the data FeeX had at the day of publication, but may not be accurate due to incomplete or erroneous data.

The best choice is based on a combined analysis of lowest fees and highest similarity to the original fund.


FeeX's similarity algorithm analyzes over 15 investment characteristics like investment category, asset allocation, strategy, geographical allocation and more. FeeX gives each its own weight and calculates the similarity of any two investments based on a scale of 0 to 100%. Funds with a similarity ranking of 85% and higher are considered "similar".

Yes, funds and ETFs charge fees

Deep within every fund you own lies a hidden fee called expense ratio. It takes away a set % of your savings each and every year. It can often be easily reduced by switching to similar investments with lower expense ratios.
