The investment seeks to provide current income consistent with the preservation of capital. Under normal circumstances, the fund invests substantially all of its assets in the Blackstone / GSO Senior Loan Portfolio, a separate series of the SSGA Master Trust with an identical investment objective as the fund. As a result, the fund invests indirectly through the Portfolio. In pursuing its investment objective, the Portfolio seeks to outperform the Markit iBoxx USD Liquid Leveraged Loan Index and the S&P/LSTA U.S. Leveraged Loan 100 Index by normally investing at least 80% of its net assets (plus any borrowings for investment purposes) in Senior Loans.
The investment seeks to provide investment results that, before fees and expenses, correspond generally to the price and yield performance of the Markit iBoxx USD Liquid Leveraged Loan Index. The fund will, under normal circumstances, invest at least 80% of its assets (the "80% basket") in component securities of the underlying index. The underlying index is a subset of the Markit iBoxx USD Leveraged Loan Index. "Leveraged Loans" are loans to companies that typically already have a high amount of debt and are often characterized by lower credit ratings or higher interest rates. It is non-diversified.
The investment seeks high current income and, secondarily, capital appreciation. The fund invests at least 80% of its net assets (including any borrowings for investment purposes) in floating rate loans and floating rate debt securities. Floating rate loans represent amounts borrowed by companies or other entities from banks and other lenders. It may invest up to 20% of its net assets in fixed rate debt securities. The fund may also invest up to 20% of its total assets in non-U.S. dollar-denominated loans and debt securities (including securities of issuers in emerging markets) in keeping with the fund's investment objective.

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.
