The investment seeks current income. The fund invests exclusively in U.S. Treasury securities, U.S. government agency securities, U.S. government agency mortgage securities (collectively "U.S. government securities"), and repurchase agreements collateralized by U.S. government securities. Under normal circumstances the fund's portfolio will maintain a weighted average maturity of three years or less.
The investment seeks the realization over a period of years of the highest yield consistent with relatively low price volatility. The fund invests in high quality debt securities with short- and intermediate-term maturities, including U.S. government and agency obligations, high quality corporate obligations, and high quality commercial paper and other money market instruments. The adviser typically distributes the fund's investments in varying amounts among securities maturing in up to six or seven years from the time of purchase, but occasionally may purchase securities maturing in up to 15 years.
The investment seeks current income while maintaining limited price volatility. The fund invests at least 80% of its assets in short-term bonds issued or guaranteed by the U.S. government and its agencies and instrumentalities, many of which are not backed by the full faith and credit of the U.S. government. It is expected to maintain a dollar-weighted average maturity of 1 to 4 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.
