Description
The investment seeks total return consisting of income and capital appreciation. The fund normally invests at least 80% of its net assets plus any borrowings for investment purposes (measured at the time of purchase) ("Net Assets") in U.S. or foreign fixed income securities. It may not invest, in the aggregate, more than 20% of its total assets (not including securities lending collateral and any investment of that collateral) measured at the time of purchase in emerging countries debt and non-investment grade fixed income securities. The fund's maximum target duration under normal interest rate conditions is expected to be approximately 3.5 years.
The investment seeks to provide current income. Under normal circumstances, the fund invests at least 80% of its net assets (plus any borrowings for investment purposes) in corporate bonds with a term to maturity of between 1 and 5 years. For purposes of such policy, "bonds" includes bonds, debentures, notes and zero coupon obligations. The advisor currently anticipates that it will only purchase bonds that are, at the time of investment, rated investment grade (BBB- or above by Standard & Poor's Ratings Services ("S&P") or Fitch Ratings Inc. ("Fitch") or Baa3 or above by Moody's Investors Service, Inc. ("Moody's")) or their unrated equivalents.
The investment seeks current income while maintaining a low degree of share price fluctuation. The fund normally invests at least 80% of its net assets (plus borrowing for investment purposes) in fixed-income securities that are in the three highest credit categories as ranked by a NRSRO. The dollar-weighted average portfolio maturity of the fund is expected to be three years or less. These investments may include: commercial paper; corporate bonds; U.S. Treasury securities; securities issued or guaranteed by U.S. government entities, agencies or instrumentalities; municipal bonds; U.S. dollar-denominated debt securities of foreign issuers; and etc.

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.

Similarity

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.
