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

The following are LVLAX weaknesses from our perspective:

  • LVLAX net assets are $1.40 million. This fund is not a popular choice with retail investors.
  • LVLAX 3-year return is -7.45%, which is lower than the 3-year return of the benchmark index (MSCI EM NR USD), -0.52%.
  • LVLAX 5-year return is -4.68%, which is lower than the 5-year return of the benchmark index (MSCI EM NR USD), -0.07%.
  • 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.
  • LVLAX expense ratio is 1.33%, which is not negligible. Is the fund expensive to you, and does it align to your investment strategy?
