  • <strong>IGDCX net assets</strong> are $18.50 million. This fund is not a popular choice with retail investors.
  • <strong>IGDCX expense ratio</strong> is 2.24%, 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.
