Description
The investment seeks a high level of income consistent with preservation of capital. The fund invests primarily in various types of short duration debt (or fixed income) securities. It pursues its investment objective by investing at least 65% of its net assets in investment grade debt securities including corporate debt securities of U.S. issuers; corporate debt securities of non-U.S. (including emerging market) issuers that are denominated in U.S. dollars; mortgage-backed and other asset-backed securities; and securities issued or guaranteed by the U.S. government, its agencies or government-sponsored enterprises; and inflation-linked investments.
The investment seeks a higher level of current income while preserving capital. The fund normally invests at least 80% of its net assets plus any borrowing for investment purposes in a diversified portfolio of bonds, including corporate bonds of domestic issuers and of foreign issuers payable in U.S. dollars, short-term debt instruments, mortgage- and asset-related securities, bonds of foreign government issuers (including its agencies and instrumentalities) payable in U.S. dollars, and U.S. Treasury securities and other debt securities issued or guaranteed by the U.S. government (including its agencies and instrumentalities).
The investment seeks to provide current income consistent with preservation of capital, while limiting fluctuations in net asset value ("NAV") due to changes in interest rates. The Sub-Advisor applies a time-tested approach and extensive credit research to capitalize on opportunities across undervalued areas of the bond markets. The fund principally invests in investment-grade securities, which are securities with credit ratings within the four highest rating categories of a nationally recognized statistical rating organization or, if unrated, those securities that the Sub-Advisor determines to be of comparable quality.

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.
