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

The following are IEFCX weaknesses from our perspective:

  • <strong>IEFCX net assets</strong> are $9.30 million. This fund is not a popular choice with retail investors.
  • <strong>IEFCX 3-year return</strong> is -23.97%, which is lower than the 3-year return of the benchmark index (MSCI World/Energy NR USD), -16.87%.
  • <strong>IEFCX 5-year return</strong> is -16.81%, which is lower than the 5-year return of the benchmark index (MSCI World/Energy NR USD), -7.98%.
  • <strong>IEFCX 10-year return</strong> is -10.35%, which is lower than the 10-year return of the benchmark index (MSCI World/Energy NR USD), -4.32%.
  • <strong>IEFCX 15-year return</strong> is -4.97%, which is lower than the 15-year return of the benchmark index (MSCI World/Energy NR USD), -1.18%.
  • <strong>IEFCX expense ratio</strong> is 2.2%, 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.
