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

The following are CLIAX weaknesses from our perspective:

  • CLIAX net assets are $60.60 million. This fund is not a popular choice with retail investors.
  • CLIAX 3-year return is 3.14%, which is lower than the 3-year return of the benchmark index (S&P 500 TR USD), 13.47%.
  • CLIAX 5-year return is 5.01%, which is lower than the 5-year return of the benchmark index (S&P 500 TR USD), 15.37%.
  • CLIAX 10-year return is 4.99%, which is lower than the 10-year return of the benchmark index (S&P 500 TR USD), 13.87%.
  • CLIAX 15-year return is 4.5%, which is lower than the 15-year return of the benchmark index (S&P 500 TR USD), 9.68%.
  • CLIAX expense ratio is 1%, 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.
