Description
The investment seeks total return. The fund invests approximately 60% of its assets (net assets plus any borrowings for investment purposes) in stocks and 40% of its assets in fixed-income securities (such as bonds) and cash equivalents. Although this 60/40 ratio may vary, the fund will invest at least 25% of its assets in fixed-income securities. The fund may invest up to 20% of its net assets in foreign securities, but only in countries the Subadvisors consider stable, and only in securities considered to be of high quality. It may also invest in derivatives.
The investment seeks regular income, conservation of principal, and an opportunity for long-term growth of principal and income. The fund invests in a diversified portfolio of equity securities and debt securities. Under normal circumstances no less than 25% and no more than 75% of total assets will be invested in equity securities. The fund may invest up to 20% of its total assets in U.S. dollar-denominated securities of non-U.S. issuers traded in the United States that are not in the S&P 500 Index.

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.

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.
