The fund invests at least 80% of its investable assets (net assets plus borrowings for investment purposes, if any) in debt securities (generally referred to as "bonds") and/or investments that provide exposure to bonds. It may invest up to 50% of its total assets in debt securities that are rated below investment grade (which are sometimes referred to as "junk bonds") or, if unrated, of comparable quality at the time of purchase.
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.
