14. What are the cons of investing in ALLGX? What are ALLGX negatives?

The following are ALLGX weaknesses from our perspective:

  • ALLGX net assets are $1.10 million. This fund is not a popular choice with retail investors.
  • ALLGX 3-year return is 1.44%, which is lower than the 3-year return of the benchmark index (MSCI ACWI NR USD), 4.21%.
  • ALLGX 5-year return is 2.3%, which is lower than the 5-year return of the benchmark index (MSCI ACWI NR USD), 4.32%.
  • Warning: this fund has a 12b1 and front-end sales fee. The maximum 12b1 fee is 0.25%, while the maximum front-end sales load is 5.5%. A 12b-1 fee is an annual marketing or distribution fee on a mutual fund. Front-end sales load, also known as sales charge, is a fee paid when mutual funds shares are purchased. Those fees are subtracted from your total investable assets.
  • ALLGX expense ratio is 0.7%, which is not negligible. Is the fund expensive to you, and does it align to your investment strategy?
