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 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 investment results that, before fees and expenses, correspond generally to the price and yield performance of the Barclays U.S. Aggregate Index. The fund generally invests substantially all, but at least 80%, of its total assets in the securities comprising the index or in securities that the Adviser determines have economic characteristics that are substantially identical to the economic characteristics of the securities that comprise the index. The index is designed to measure the performance of the U.S. dollar denominated investment grade bond market. The fund 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.
