Description
The investment seeks current income and; secondarily, long term capital appreciation. Under normal circumstances, the fund invests in a combination of (i) fixed income funds, and (ii) equity funds that utilize diverse investment styles, such as growth and/or value investing. It seeks to achieve this by investing in a combination of other funds - the "underlying funds" - through the implementation of a strategic asset allocation strategy.
The investment seeks to track the investment results of the S&P Target Risk Moderate Index composed of a portfolio of underlying equity and fixed income funds intended to represent a moderate target risk allocation strategy. The fund is a fund of funds and seeks its investment objective by investing primarily in the securities of other iShares Underlying Funds that themselves seek investment results corresponding to their own underlying index. The S&P Target Risk Moderate Index measures the performance of the S&P Dow Jones Indices LLC proprietary allocation model.
The investment seeks long-term total return, consisting of current income and capital appreciation. The fund is a "fund of funds" that invests in Institutional Class shares of other funds of the Trust and potentially in other investment pools or investment products. It generally seeks to meet the fund's investment objective by investing: (1) approximately 40% of the fund's assets in equity underlying funds and (2) approximately 60% of the fund's assets in fixed-income underlying funds. It may deviate from these target allocations by up to ten percentage points depending upon current market conditions and outlook.

The fees, balance and savings information above are estimated numbers, based on the data FeeX had at the day of publication, but may not be accurate due to incomplete or erroneous data.

The best choice is based on a combined analysis of lowest fees and highest similarity to the original fund.

Similarity

FeeX's similarity algorithm analyzes over 15 investment characteristics like investment category, asset allocation, strategy, geographical allocation and more. FeeX gives each its own weight and calculates the similarity of any two investments based on a scale of 0 to 100%. Funds with a similarity ranking of 85% and higher are considered "similar".

Yes, funds and ETFs charge fees

Deep within every fund you own lies a hidden fee called expense ratio. It takes away a set % of your savings each and every year. It can often be easily reduced by switching to similar investments with lower expense ratios.
