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

The following are AOPCX weaknesses from our perspective:

  • <strong>AOPCX net assets</strong> are $0.90 million. This fund is not a popular choice with retail investors.
  • <strong>AOPCX 3-year return</strong> is -0.39%, which is lower than the 3-year return of the benchmark index (MSCI World Ex USA Small Cap NR USD), 1.41%.
  • <strong>AOPCX 5-year return</strong> is 3.63%, which is lower than the 5-year return of the benchmark index (MSCI World Ex USA Small Cap NR USD), 6.65%.
  • <strong>AOPCX 10-year return</strong> is 5.92%, which is lower than the 10-year return of the benchmark index (MSCI World Ex USA Small Cap NR USD), 6.73%.
  • <strong>AOPCX expense ratio</strong> is 2%, which is not negligible. Is the fund expensive to you, and does it align to your investment strategy?
  • Warning: this fund has a 12b1 and deferred sales fee. The maximum 12b1 fee is 1%, while the maximum deferred sales load is 1%. A 12b-1 fee is an annual marketing or distribution fee on a mutual fund. Deferred sales load is a back-end sales charge and is imposed when an investor redeems shares.
