Description
The investment seeks income and capital appreciation. The fund will invest primarily in asset-backed debt securities ("ABS"), which are predominantly backed by mortgages on real estate. It will typically invest in both fixed and floating rate securities, although the ratio between the two will vary from time-to-time, depending upon market conditions and available investment opportunities. The fund's adviser has delegated management of the fund's portfolio to a sub-adviser. The fund may also invest in other types of asset-backed or debt securities. It is non-diversified.
The investment seeks investment results that generally correspond (before fees and expenses) to the price and yield of the RAFI® Bonds US High Yield 1-10 Index. The fund generally will invest at least 80% of its total assets in high-yield corporate bonds that comprise the underlying index. The underlying index is comprised of U.S. dollar-denominated bonds which are SEC-registered securities or Rule 144A securities with registration rights (issued after July 31, 2013) and whose issuers are public companies listed on a major U.S. stock exchange.
The investment seeks to achieve long-term total rate of return, primarily through investments in bonds, and to a lesser extent, through convertible securities and high-yielding equities consistent with preservation of capital. Under normal circumstances, the fund will invest at least eighty percent (80%) of the value of its net assets plus any borrowings for investment purposes in income-producing securities. The fund may (i) invest up to twenty percent (20%) of its assets in primarily dividend-paying common stocks and (ii) own an unlimited amount of high-yield/high-risk bonds.

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.

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.
