Description
The investment seeks to provide total return through a combination of capital appreciation and current income. The Portfolio is designed for investors who seek total return through a combination of capital appreciation and current income. The Portfolio also is designed for investors who plan to maintain their investments, and who do not expect to incur expenses related to higher education, for at least two to three years. The Portfolio invests in a combination of growth-oriented Waddell & Reed Advisors and/or Ivy equity mutual funds and Waddell & Reed Advisors and/or Ivy bond and income-producing mutual funds.
The investment seeks long-term growth of principal while providing some current income. The fund invests approximately 60% of its total assets in common stocks, and ordinarily limits its common stock investments to no more than 75% of its total assets. Although there is no restriction on the size of companies in which it may invest, ordinarily most of its common stock investments are in companies with market capitalizations of at least $1.5 billion at the time of investment. It ordinarily invests at least 25% of its total assets in fixed income securities, including investment grade bonds issued by U.S. companies and U.S. government and agency obligations.
The investment seeks to provide long-term capital appreciation and moderate current income. The fund invests 60% to 70% of its assets in dividend-paying and, to a lesser extent, non-dividend-paying common stocks of established large companies. The remaining 30% to 40% of the fund's assets are invested mainly in fixed income securities that the advisor believes will generate a moderate level of current income. These securities include investment-grade corporate bonds, with some exposure to U.S. Treasury and government agency bonds, and mortgage-backed securities.

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.
