It seeks to earn a total return, net of fees and expenses, that is equivalent to the interest crediting rate established by the Internal Revenue Service for cash balance pension plans using the 30-year U.S. Treasury Bond Yield. The fund seeks to earn this rate each calendar year. It invests at least 80% of its total assets in a wide variety of debt instruments and income-producing securities. The fund is non-diversified.
The investment seeks real return consistent with preservation of capital. The fund pursues its investment objective by primarily investing in U.S. Treasury securities, short-duration high-yield/high-risk debt, commodity-linked investments, and equity securities. Its investments in U.S. Treasury securities may also include Treasury Inflation-Protected Securities, also known as TIPS. The fund may invest up to 90% of its net assets in short-duration high-yield/high-risk debt securities. Its investments in short-duration high-yield/high-risk securities include debt rated below investment grade, also known as "junk" bonds.

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.
