Description
The investment seeks a high level of current income. Normally, the fund invests at least 80% of its net assets (plus the amount of borrowings, if any, for investment purposes) in debt securities of issuers located throughout the world, including corporate and government issuers. The fund will allocate its assets among various regions and countries, including the United States (but in no less than three different countries).
The investment seeks high income and some capital appreciation. The fund will invest at least 80% of its net assets (including any borrowings for investment purposes) in bonds. It may invest in a variety of holdings in an effort to enhance income and achieve some capital growth. Up to 50% of the fund's net assets can be invested in non-U.S. dollar-denominated foreign debt securities. Up to 65% of the fund's net assets can be invested in securities and other holdings that are rated noninvestment-grade (below BBB, or an equivalent rating).
The investment seeks long-term total return. Under normal market conditions, the fund invests at least 80% of its net assets in bonds. It invests primarily in companies located in developed countries world-wide (including the United States), but may also invest in emerging markets. Under normal market conditions, the fund will invest at least 40% of its assets in foreign investments (unless the portfolio managers deem market conditions unfavorable, in which case the fund would invest at least 30% of its assets in foreign investments).

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.
