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 track the investment results of the Barclays US Floating Rate Note < 5 Years Index (the "underlying index"), which measures the performance of U.S. dollar-denominated, investment-grade floating rate notes. The fund generally will invest at least 90% of its assets in the component securities of the underlying index and may invest up to 10% of its assets in certain futures, options and swap contracts, cash and cash equivalents, as well as in securities not included in the underlying index, but which BFA believes will help the fund track the underlying index.
The investment seeks to maximize current income. The fund seeks to achieve its investment objective by investing, under normal circumstances, at least 80% of its net assets in a portfolio of U.S. dollar-denominated investment-grade fixed-income securities. Under normal circumstances, the effective duration of its portfolio is expected to be one year or less, as calculated by the management team. It is an actively managed exchange-traded fund ("ETF") that does not seek to replicate the performance of a specified index. 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.


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.
