The investment seeks to maximize total return through capital appreciation and income. To pursue its goal, the fund normally invests at least 80% of its net assets, plus any borrowings for investment purposes, in fixed-income securities. Its portfolio managers typically allocate the fund's assets among the following sectors of the fixed-income market: (i) below investment grade (high yield) sector, (ii) the U.S. government, investment grade corporate, mortgage and asset-backed sectors, (iii) the foreign debt securities of developed markets sector, and (iv) the foreign debt securities of emerging markets sector. The fund is non-diversified.
The investment seeks total return comprised of income and capital appreciation. The fund invests in a broadly diversified portfolio of U.S. and foreign investment grade and non-investment grade fixed income investments including, but not limited to: U.S. government securities, non-U.S. sovereign debt, agency securities, corporate debt securities, agency and non-agency mortgage-backed securities, asset-backed securities, custodial receipts, municipal securities, loan participations and loan assignments and convertible securities. It may implement short positions and may do so by using swaps or futures, or through short sales of any instrument.
The investment seeks to provide a high level of risk-adjusted current income and capital appreciation. Under normal market conditions, the fund invests at least 80% of its net assets (plus any borrowings for investment purposes) in mortgage-backed securities ("MBS"). The weighted average maturity of the fund's MBS investments will generally range from between 1 and 10 years and the fund may invest without limit in MBS that are rated below investment grade (i.e., "high yield" or "junk" ratings).

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.
