Description
The investment seeks to provide current income while preserving capital. The fund primarily invests in a diversified portfolio of fixed income securities of all types, including investment-grade securities such as U.S. government securities, corporate bonds, asset-backed securities and mortgage-backed securities. The dollar-weighted average maturity of the fund's portfolio is normally expected to be less than 18 months, but may vary outside that range from time to time. Under normal circumstances, at least 80% of the fund's net assets plus any borrowings for investment purposes will be invested in debt securities (bonds).
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.
The investment seeks to provide investment results that, before fees and expenses, correspond generally to the price and yield performance of the Bloomberg Barclays U.S. Dollar Floating Rate Note < 5 Years Index. The fund generally invests substantially all, but at least 80%, of its total assets in the securities comprising the index or in securities that the Adviser determines have economic characteristics that are substantially identical to the economic characteristics of the securities that comprise the index. The index is designed to measure the performance of U.S. dollar-denominated, investment grade floating rate notes. The fund is non-diversified.

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.
