The investment seeks as high a level of current income as is consistent with preserving capital. The fund normally invests at least 80% of its net assets in securities issued by the United States government and its agencies and instrumentalities. The fund's subadviser seeks to achieve the fund's objective by investing in securities offering the highest level of expected income while simultaneously minimizing market price fluctuations. The subadviser typically maintains an average portfolio duration that is up to one year greater than or less than the average portfolio duration of the Bank of America Merrill Lynch U.S. Treasury & Agency Index.
The investment seeks to track as closely as possible, before fees and expenses, the price and yield performance of the Bloomberg Barclays U.S.3-10 Year Treasury Bond Index. The fund invests at least 90% of its net assets in securities included in the index. The index includes all publicly-issued U.S. Treasury securities that have a remaining maturity of greater than or equal to three years and less than ten years, are rated investment grade, and have $250 million or more of outstanding face value. The securities in the index must be denominated in U.S. dollars and must be fixed-rate and non-convertible.
The investment seeks to provide investment results that correspond generally to the price and yield performance of the Bloomberg Barclays Intermediate U.S. Treasury Index.

The index measures the performance of public obligations of the U.S. Treasury that have a remaining maturity of greater than or equal to 1 year and less than 10 years. It is non-diversified.

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.
