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

The following are ARTCX weaknesses from our perspective:

  • <strong>ARTCX net assets</strong> are $1.50 million. This fund is not a popular choice with retail investors.
  • <strong>ARTCX 3-year return</strong> is 0.34%, which is lower than the 3-year return of the benchmark index (Bloomberg Barclays US Universal TR USD), 5.22%.
  • <strong>ARTCX 5-year return</strong> is 3.05%, which is lower than the 5-year return of the benchmark index (Bloomberg Barclays US Universal TR USD), 4.58%.
  • <strong>ARTCX 10-year return</strong> is 2.9%, which is lower than the 10-year return of the benchmark index (Bloomberg Barclays US Universal TR USD), 3.97%.
  • <strong>ARTCX expense ratio</strong> is 1.7%, 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.
