The investment seeks absolute return over a full market cycle. The fund will normally invest at least 80% of its net assets in long and short positions in credit-related instruments. For purposes of this 80% requirement, credit-related instruments will include any type of fixed-income security, such as corporate bonds, convertible fixed-income securities, preferred stocks, U.S. government and agency securities, securities of foreign governments and supranational entities, mortgage-related and asset-backed securities, and loan participations. The fund is non-diversified.
The investment seeks to provide current income and capital growth. The fund invests primarily in a portfolio of debt securities including corporate bonds and debentures (including high yield bonds commonly known as "junk bonds"), bank loans, convertible and preferred securities, credit default swaps and other debt instruments and derivatives that the fund's investment adviser believes have debt-like characteristics. It invests in both domestic and foreign debt securities. The principal types of derivatives in which the fund may invest are credit default swaps, interest rate swaps, total return swaps, futures and options.

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.
