Description
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. The fund will, under normal circumstances, invest primarily (and not less than 80% of its net assets) in fixed-income securities. 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 investment seeks to provide current income consistent with preservation of capital and daily liquidity through short duration high quality investments. Under normal circumstances, the fund invests substantially all of its assets in the SSGA Ultra Short Term Bond Portfolio (the "Portfolio"), a separate series of the SSGA Master Trust with an identical investment objective as the fund. The Adviser invests at least 80% of the Portfolio's net assets (plus the amount of borrowings for investment purposes) in a diversified portfolio of U.S. dollar-denominated investment grade fixed income securities. It is non-diversified.

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.
