The investment seeks total return. The fund seeks its investment objective by investing in securities, derivatives and other instruments to establish long and short investment exposures around the world. Total return is defined as income plus capital appreciation. The fund normally invests in multiple countries and frequently has significant exposure to foreign currencies and investments. The fund's long and short investments primarily are sovereign exposures, including currencies, interest rates and debt instruments issued or guaranteed by sovereign entities. It is non-diversified.
The investment seeks total return through income and capital appreciation through all market cycles. The fund invests in fixed-income instruments, including investment-grade securities and below investment-grade securities, commonly referred to as "junk bonds." It generally maintains a dollar-weighted average duration profile between -2 and 6 years. The fund may also invest in floating rate loans, and other floating rate debt instruments.
The investment seeks positive long-term returns irrespective of general securities market conditions. The fund invests at least 80% of its net assets, which includes borrowings for investment purposes, in securities and instruments it regards as bonds in the U.S. and abroad, including emerging markets, and may purchase securities of varying maturities issued by domestic and foreign corporations and governments. It may invest in both investment grade and "junk bonds", subject to investing no more than 50% of its total assets in securities rated below investment grade. Normally, the average portfolio duration of this fund will vary from -3 years to 8 years.

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.
