The investment seeks to provide a high level of current income. The fund invests in securities through an underlying master fund having the same investment goals and strategies. The fund's sub-adviser, Aegon USA Investment Management, LLC (the "sub-adviser"), seeks to achieve the fund's objective by investing, under normal circumstances, at least 80% of the fund's net assets (plus the amount of borrowings, if any, for investment purposes) in high-yield bonds (commonly known as "junk bonds").
The investment seeks to replicate as closely as possible, before fees and expenses, the price and yield performance of the BofA Merrill Lynch US Fallen Angel High Yield Index (the "Fallen Angel 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 below investment grade corporate bonds denominated in U.S. dollars that were rated investment grade at the time of issuance.
The investment seeks high current income. The fund pursues its investment objective by investing primarily in a diversified portfolio of high yield corporate bonds (also known as "junk bonds"), including loans and debt securities issued by U.S. or foreign businesses (including emerging market debt securities). The Adviser does not limit the fund's investments to securities of a particular maturity range. It may invest in derivative contracts (for example, futures contracts, option contracts and swap contracts) to implement its investment strategies.

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.
