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 to provide investors with a high level of current income and total return. Under normal market conditions, the fund invests at least 80% of its net assets (plus borrowings for investment purposes) in a diversified portfolio of high-yield (high risk) bonds commonly known as "junk bonds." High-yield bonds are debt securities that, at the time of purchase, are not rated by a nationally recognized statistical rating organization ("NRSRO") or are rated below investment-grade (for example, rated below BBB- by Standard & Poor's Ratings Services or Baa3 by Moody's Investors Service, Inc.) or have an equivalent rating by a NRSRO.
The investment seeks high total return consistent with capital preservation. To pursue its goal, the fund normally invests mainly in a diversified portfolio of U.S. dollar-denominated, High-Yield Bonds, with an emphasis on debt securities rated below investment grade (commonly called "junk bonds"). The adviser normally expects to have a weighted average maturity between five and ten years.

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.
