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

The following are EEDFX weaknesses from our perspective:

  • EEDFX net assets are $1.00 million. This fund is not a popular choice with retail investors.
  • 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.
  • EEDFX expense ratio is 1.21%, which is not negligible. Is the fund expensive to you, and does it align to your investment strategy?
