Description
The investment seeks total return, primarily from capital appreciation, fees and interest income. The fund opportunistically invests in a combination of high yield bonds, senior secured bank loans and distressed debt instruments. It will primarily utilize a fundamental based investment research process that will seek to capitalize on market inefficiencies and reallocate its portfolio to opportunistically emphasize those investments, categories of investments and geographic exposures believed to be best suited to the current investment and interest rate environment and market outlook. The fund is non-diversified.
The investment seeks to provide a high level of current income. The fund invests primarily in a diversified group of high-yielding, higher-risk corporate bonds-commonly known as "junk bonds"-with medium- and lower-range credit-quality ratings. It invests at least 80% of its assets in corporate bonds that are rated below Baa by Moody's Investors Service, Inc. (Moody's); have an equivalent rating by any other independent bond-rating agency; or, if unrated, are determined to be of comparable quality by the fund's advisor. The fund's high-yield bonds and loans mostly have short- and intermediate-term maturities.
The investment seeks investment results that generally correspond (before fees and expenses) to the price and yield of the DB Global Short Maturity High Yield Bond Index. The fund generally will invest at least 80% of its total assets in U.S. and foreign short-term, non-investment grade bonds included in the underlying index, all of which are denominated in U.S. dollars. It 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.
