The investment seeks to provide total return that closely corresponds, before fees and expenses, to the total return of the BofA Merrill Lynch 0-5 Year US High Yield Constrained IndexSM. The fund invests under normal circumstances at least 80% of its total assets (exclusive of collateral held from securities lending) in the component securities of the BofA Merrill Lynch 0-5 Year US High Yield Constrained Index SM. The underlying index is an unmanaged index comprised of U.S. dollar denominated below investment grade corporate debt securities publicly issued in the U.S. domestic market with remaining maturities of less than 5 years. It is non-diversified.
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 investment seeks to track the investment results of the Markit iBoxx® USD Liquid High Yield Index (the "underlying index"). The underlying index is a rules-based index consisting of liquid U.S. dollar-denominated, high yield corporate bonds for sale in the United States, as determined by the index provider. 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, as well as in securities not included in the underlying index.

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.
