Description
The investment seeks maximum total return, comprised of income and capital appreciation. The fund will normally invest in a portfolio of fixed income instruments of varying maturities and of any credit quality. It will normally invest at least 80% of its assets in fixed income instruments, which may be represented by certain derivative instruments, and also include exchange-traded funds ("ETFs") and closed-end funds ("CEFs") that invest substantially all of their assets in fixed income instruments (which may include ETFs and CEFs affiliated with the fund). The fund is non-diversified.
The investment seeks to track the investment results of the Bloomberg Barclays U.S. Universal Index. The fund generally will invest at least 90% of its assets in the component securities of the underlying index and may invest up to 10% of its assets in certain futures, options and swap contracts, cash and cash equivalents, including shares of money market funds advised by BFA or its affiliates, as well as in securities not included in the underlying index, but which BFA believes will help the fund track the underlying index. The index measures the performance of U.S. dollar-denominated taxable bonds that are rated either investment-grade or high yield.
The investment seeks to track the investment results of the MorningstarĀ® U.S. Bond Market Yield-Optimized IndexSM (the "underlying index"). The fund invests primarily in underlying funds that themselves seek investment results corresponding to their own underlying indexes. It also invests in a combination of other exchange-traded funds ("ETFs") (including other iShares ETFs), cash and cash equivalents, including shares of money market funds advised by BFA or its affiliates ("BlackRock Cash Funds"). The underlying index is a broadly diversified fixed income index that seeks to deliver current income.

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.
