Description
The investment seeks to generate a high level of current income. The fund normally invests at least 80% of its total assets in a diversified portfolio of high yield fixed income securities. These include corporate bonds, convertible securities and preferred securities. The Investment Manager will generally purchase securities for the fund that are not investment grade ("junk" bonds), meaning securities with a rating of "BB" or lower as rated by Standard & Poor's or a comparable rating by another nationally recognized rating agency. The fund will not invest in Excluded Securities.
The investment seeks high current income; capital appreciation is secondary. Under normal market conditions, the portfolio managers will maintain at least 80% of the fund's net assets in high-yield corporate bonds and other debt instruments. The remaining assets may be invested in common stocks or other equity-related securities. Up to 40% of the fund's total assets may be invested in fixed-income obligations of foreign issuers. It may invest up to 20% of its assets in short-term money market instruments and U.S. government securities. The fund has no average maturity limitations, but it typically invests in intermediate-term and long-term debt securities.

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.
