Description
The investment seeks high current income, liquidity and security of principal. Under normal circumstances, the fund invests at least 80% of net assets, plus the amount of any borrowings for investment purposes, in securities backed by the full faith and credit of the U.S. government, including related repurchase agreements (the "80% test"). Within the 80% test, the fund invests principally in Ginnie Maes (mortgage-backed securities issued or guaranteed by the Government National Mortgage Association (GNMA)), but may also invest in U.S. Treasuries and other securities that are backed by the full faith and credit of the U.S. government.
The investment seeks to track the investment results of Bloomberg Barclays U.S. GNMA Bond Index. The fund generally will invest at least 90% of its assets in the component securities of the underlying index and in investments that have economic characteristics that are substantially identical to the component securities of the underlying index. The underlying index includes fixed-rate mortgage pass-through securities issued by GNMA that have 30- or 15-year maturities. The index measures the performance of mortgage-backed pass-through securities issued by GNMA.
The investment seeks a high level of current income, consistent with preservation of principal. The fund normally invests at least 80% of assets in U.S. government securities and repurchase agreements for those securities. It invests in U.S. government securities issued by entities that are chartered or sponsored by Congress but whose securities are neither issued nor guaranteed by the U.S. Treasury. The fund invests in instruments related to U.S. government securities. It allocates assets across different market sectors and maturities.

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.
