The investment seeks investment returns that exceed the rate of inflation in the U.S. economy over a full economic cycle; the secondary objective is current income. The fund uses the Consumer Price Index ("CPI") for All Urban Consumers to measure the rate of inflation in the U.S. economy. It pursues its investment objective by combining inflation-linked derivatives and inflation-indexed fixed income securities (collectively, "Inflation-Linked Investments") with a portfolio of fixed income securities. In addition, the fund may buy or sell Treasury futures or interest rate swaps to actively manage its portfolio duration.
The investment seeks total return using a strategy that seeks to protect against U.S. inflation. The fund normally invests at least 80% of its net assets in inflation-linked debt securities. It invests primarily in investment-grade securities, but may also invest a portion of its assets in high-yield securities, or junk bonds. The fund also may invest a portion of its net assets in fixed-income securities that are not linked to inflation. It may invest up to 20% of its total assets in securities denominated in foreign currencies and may invest beyond this limit in U.S. dollar denominated securities of foreign issuers.

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.
