Description
The investment seeks to maximize total investment return for a moderate level of risk. The fund is a "fund of funds" that invests primarily in affiliated mutual funds representing a variety of asset classes. It also invests in certain underlying funds that are not index funds. The fund aims to provide diversification across major asset classes-U.S. stocks, international stocks, and bonds-by investing primarily in mutual funds offered by Nationwide Mutual Funds and a fixed interest contract issued by Nationwide Life Insurance Company ("Nationwide Contract"). It is non-diversified.
The investment seeks both capital growth and income. To pursue its goal, the portfolio maintains a defined asset allocation. The portfolio's target allocation includes bond, stock and cash investments. The portfolio's allocation is weighted toward stock investments, while including substantial bond investments in seeking to add income and reduce the portfolio's volatility. The portfolio seeks to remain close to the target allocations of 60% equity, 35% fixed income and 5% cash and cash equivalents (including money market funds) and typically does not change its target allocation.
The investment seeks income and preservation and growth of capital. The fund invests primarily in a diversified portfolio of U.S. equity and debt securities (although the fund may invest up to 35% of its total assets in equity and debt securities of non-U.S. issuers). It is intended to present a balanced investment program between growth and income by investing approximately 40-75% of its total assets in common stock, including securities convertible into common stock, and up to 60% of its total assets in debt securities issued by U.S. or non-U.S. governments and corporate entities rated at the time of purchase within the two highest grades.

Similarity

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.
