The fund normally invests in a broad range of U.S. dollar-denominated debt securities, including money market instruments. It normally invests at least 80% of its net assets, plus any borrowings for investment purposes, in debt securities, including money market instruments. It will invest more than 25% of its assets in securities issued by companies in the financial services industry and repurchase agreements secured by such obligations. The adviser expects to maintain a dollar-weighted average portfolio maturity of 120 days or less.
The investment seeks to maximize total return (capital appreciation and income), adjusted for the federal maximum tax rate, to the extent consistent with preservation of principal.

It invests in investment grade domestic debt obligations (i.e., obligations rated within the top four rating categories by a Nationally Recognized Statistical Rating Organization ("NRSRO") or of comparable quality as determined by the fund's investment adviser).

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.
