Description
The investment seeks high total return. The fund invests at least 80% of its net assets in debt securities of "emerging market countries." Emerging market countries generally include those considered to be developing by the World Bank. It generally invests in debt securities issued by sovereign and sub-sovereign government entities. The fund may invest up to a 100% of its assets in debt securities that are rated below investment grade. It may also invest up to 15% of its net assets in defaulted debt securities.
The investment seeks to track the investment results of the Morningstar® Emerging Markets High Yield Bond IndexSM. The fund generally will invest at least 90% of its assets in the component securities of the underlying index and may invest up to 10% of its assets in certain futures, options and swap contracts, cash and cash equivalents, including shares of money market funds advised by BFA or its affiliates. The index tracks the performance of the below-investment-grade U.S. dollar-denominated emerging market sovereign and corporate high yield bond market. The fund is non-diversified.

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.
