The investment seeks to maximize total return. The fund seeks to achieve its objective by investing principally in debt instruments of corporate issuers, which may be denominated in any currency, including the local currency of the issuer. A Corporate issuer is an issuer located in an Emerging Market Country or an issuer deriving at least 50% of its revenues or profits from goods produced or sold, investments made, or services performed in one or more Emerging Market Countries or that has at least 50% of its assets in one or more Emerging Market Countries.
The investment seeks to replicate as closely as possible, before fees and expenses, the price and yield performance of the BofA Merrill Lynch Diversified High Yield US Emerging Markets Corporate Plus Index. The fund normally invests at least 80% of its total assets in securities that comprise the fund's benchmark index. The index is comprised of U.S. dollar denominated bonds issued by non-sovereign emerging market issuers that are rated BB1 or lower and that are issued in the major domestic and Eurobond markets.
The investment seeks a high level of total return consisting of income and capital appreciation. The fund normally invests at least 80% of its net assets plus any borrowings for investment purposes in sovereign and corporate debt securities and other instruments of issuers in emerging market countries. The advisor intends to use structured securities or derivatives, including but not limited to credit linked notes, financial future contracts, forward contracts and swap contracts to gain exposure to certain countries or currencies. It may invest in all types of foreign and emerging country fixed income securities. The fund is non-diversified.

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.
