The following are IBVCX weaknesses from our perspective:

  • <strong>IBVCX net assets</strong> are $2.90 million. This fund is not a popular choice with retail investors.
  • <strong>IBVCX 3-year return</strong> is -0.75%, which is lower than the 3-year return of the benchmark index (MSCI EAFE NR USD), 0.71%.
  • <strong>IBVCX 5-year return</strong> is 3.23%, which is lower than the 5-year return of the benchmark index (MSCI EAFE NR USD), 4.59%.
  • <strong>IBVCX 10-year return</strong> is 2.37%, which is lower than the 10-year return of the benchmark index (MSCI EAFE NR USD), 4.76%.
  • <strong>IBVCX 15-year return</strong> is 1.91%, which is lower than the 15-year return of the benchmark index (MSCI EAFE NR USD), 3.8%.
  • <strong>IBVCX expense ratio</strong> is 1.87%, 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.
