The investment seeks to provide investors with current income. The fund invests at least 80% of its net assets, plus any borrowings for investment purposes, in a diversified portfolio of debt securities (including convertible bonds). Most of the fund's investments are corporate debt securities and debt securities issued or guaranteed by the U.S. government, or its agencies. It will invest in debt securities that are not U.S. government or agency securities only if they are rated at least investment-grade quality (or are deemed to be of equivalent quality by MNA) at the time of investment. The fund may invest up to 25% of its assets in foreign debt securities.
The investment seeks to track the investment results of the Barclays U.S. Intermediate Credit Bond Index. The fund generally invests at least 90% of its assets in securities of the underlying index. The index measures the performance of investment-grade corporate debt and sovereign, supranational, local authority and non-U.S. agency bonds that are U.S. dollar-denominated and have a remaining maturity of greater than one year and less than or equal to ten years. The fund may invest the remainder of its assets in certain futures, options and swap contracts, cash and cash equivalents.

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.
