Description
The investment seeks to provide a combination of income and capital growth. The fund is a "feeder" fund that invests all of its assets in the Master Portfolio, which has the same investment objective and strategies as the fund. It invests, under normal circumstances, at least 80% of its assets in bonds. The fund invests a substantial portion of its assets in U.S.-registered, dollar-denominated bonds. It may invest in bonds issued by companies located in countries other than the United States, including companies in emerging markets. The fund may invest a significant portion of its assets in U.S. agency mortgage pass-through securities.
The investment seeks to track as closely as possible, before fees and expenses, the total return of the Bloomberg Barclays U.S. Aggregate Bond Index. The fund will invest at least 90% of its net assets in securities included in the index. The index is a broad-based benchmark measuring the performance of the U.S. investment grade, taxable bond market, including U.S. Treasuries, government-related and corporate bonds, mortgage pass-through securities, commercial mortgage-backed securities, and asset-backed securities that are publicly available for sale in the United States.
The investment seeks to provide a total return that matches or incrementally exceeds the performance of the U.S. investment-grade bond market. The fund's overall investment strategy is to match or incrementally exceed the performance of the U.S. investment-grade bond market. Under normal conditions, it will invest at least 80% of its net assets (including any borrowings for investment purposes) in bonds that are held in its benchmark index. The fund's holdings will normally include U.S. government and agency obligations, mortgage- and asset-backed securities, corporate bonds, and U.S. dollar-denominated securities of foreign issuers.

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.
