Description
The investment seeks a high level of current income, consistent with safety of principal. The fund normally invests at least 80% of its net assets plus any borrowings for investment purposes (measured at the time of purchase) in securities issued or guaranteed by the U.S. government, its agencies, instrumentalities or sponsored enterprises and in repurchase agreements collateralized by such securities. Its investments in non-U.S. government securities must be rated AAA or Aaa by a nationally recognized statistical rating organization at the time of purchase, or, if unrated, must be determined by the Investment Adviser to be of comparable credit quality.
The investment seeks to track the performance of a market-weighted government bond index with an intermediate-term dollar-weighted average maturity. The fund employs an indexing investment approach designed to track the performance of the Bloomberg Barclays U.S. 3-10 Year Government Float Adjusted Index. This index includes fixed income securities issued by the U.S. Treasury and U.S. government agencies and instrumentalities, as well as corporate or dollar-denominated foreign debt guaranteed by the U.S. government, with maturities between 3 and 10 years. At least 80% of the fund's assets will be invested in bonds included in the index.

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.
