The investment seeks high current income exempt from federal income tax that is consistent with low risk to principal and liquidity; total return is a secondary goal. To pursue its goals, the fund normally invests at least 80% of its total assets in securities of municipal issuers within the U.S. and its territories. The fund's dividends are generally exempt from federal income tax, although a portion thereof may be an item of tax preference for purposes of the federal alternative minimum tax. A portion of the dividends the investors receive may also be exempt from state and local income taxes, depending on where the investors live.
The investment seeks as high a rate of income exempt from federal income taxes as is consistent with prudent investment management. The fund invests primarily in a diversified selection of municipal bonds (for example, general obligation bonds of a state or bonds financing a specific project) with maturities of one to seventeen years. A majority of the fund's investments are in issues with maturities longer than five years. It normally invests at least 70% of its total assets in municipal bonds rated A or better by Moody's or S&P, meaning that up to 30% of the fund's total assets may be invested in medium and lower-quality bonds.
The investment seeks a high and sustainable level of current income that is exempt from federal personal income taxes. The fund invests at least 80% of its assets in investment-grade municipal bonds, as determined by a nationally recognized statistical rating organization (NRSRO) (e.g., Baa or higher by Moody's Investors Service, Inc. (Moody's)) or, if unrated, determined to be of comparable quality by the advisor. Up to 20% of the fund's assets may be invested in bonds that are rated less than investment grade by an NRSRO (e.g., less than Baa by Moody's) or, if unrated, determined to be of comparable quality by the advisor.

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.
