Description
The investment seeks high current income. The fund normally allocates its assets across fixed-income investment strategies. It is designed to complement and diversify traditional bond portfolios. The fund normally allocates its assets among other investment companies (the underlying funds) that employ various fixed-income investment strategies, including those focusing on domestic and foreign corporate bonds, high yield securities ("junk" bonds), senior loans, emerging markets debt, municipal securities and Treasury and other inflation-protected securities (TIPS).
The investment seeks income; long-term capital appreciation is the secondary consideration. The fund invests in both investment-grade and high-yield, non-money market debt securities. These securities may include corporate bonds and notes, government securities and securities backed by mortgages or other assets. The fund may also invest in certain equity securities such as preferred stock, convertible securities or equity equivalents provided that such investments are consistent with the fund's investment objectives.
The investment seeks a high level of current income. The fund will primarily invest in the underlying income funds. While the percentage of allocation to each underlying fund is flexible, under normal conditions, the fund will invest approximately 95% (within a range of 85%-100%) of its net assets in the underlying income funds and approximately 5% (within a range of 0%-15%) of its net assets in the underlying equity fund.

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.
