The investment seeks the highest return consistent with investment in U.S. Treasury securities. The fund invests at least 80% of the value of its net assets in zero-coupon securities. It invests primarily in zero-coupon U.S. Treasury securities and their equivalents (including certain zero-coupon U.S. government agency securities), and may invest up to 20% of its assets in other zero-coupon U.S. government agency securities that are AAA-rated. Zero-coupon securities make no periodic interest or principal payments. The fund is managed to mature in the year 2020 and will be liquidated near the end of its target maturity year.
The investment seeks to track the investment results of the ICE U.S. Treasury Core Bond Index (the "underlying index"). 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, but which the advisor believes will help the fund track the index. The underlying index measures the performance of public obligations of the U.S. Treasury that have a remaining maturity greater than one year and less than or equal to thirty 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.


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.
