The investment seeks income. The fund generally invests a majority of its assets in fixed income securities, such as high yield bonds (also known as "junk" bonds), preferred securities, commercial mortgage-backed securities, and emerging market debt securities, in an effort to provide incremental yields over a portfolio of government securities. In addition, it invests in equity securities to provide incremental dividend yields and diversify fixed-income related risks in the fund.
The investment seeks to provide investors with current income. The fund is a "fund-of-funds," which seeks to achieve its investment goal by investing primarily in a diversified portfolio of fixed-income and equity-income oriented underlying funds (although a portion of its assets may be invested in cash, cash equivalents, or in money market funds). The majority of the underlying funds in which the fund invests will be affiliated funds.

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.
