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

The following are AWSAX weaknesses from our perspective:

  • <strong>AWSAX net assets</strong> are $710.00 million. This fund is not a popular choice with retail investors.
  • <strong>AWSAX 3-year return</strong> is 3.02%, which is lower than the 3-year return of the benchmark index (MSCI World NR USD), 7.35%.
  • <strong>AWSAX 5-year return</strong> is 6.41%, which is lower than the 5-year return of the benchmark index (MSCI World NR USD), 9.48%.
  • <strong>AWSAX 10-year return</strong> is 5.89%, which is lower than the 10-year return of the benchmark index (MSCI World NR USD), 9.29%.
  • <strong>AWSAX 15-year return</strong> is 3.93%, which is lower than the 15-year return of the benchmark index (MSCI World NR USD), 6.59%.
  • <strong>AWSAX expense ratio</strong> is 1.22%, 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 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.
