The investment seeks to maximize total return, consisting of a combination of long-term capital appreciation and current income, while moderating risk and volatility in the portfolio. The fund operates as a fund of funds, investing primarily in registered mutual funds, including exchange-traded funds ("ETFs"). The funds in which the fund may invest are referred to herein as the "underlying funds." The Advisor believes that investing in underlying funds provides the fund with an efficient means of creating a portfolio that provides investors with indirect exposure to a broad range of securities.
The investment seeks long-term capital growth. The fund pursues its objective by investing in a combination of underlying funds and directly held financial instruments. It allocates 55%-90% of its assets in equity securities and 10%-40% in debt securities. The fund may enter into standardized derivatives contracts traded on domestic or foreign securities exchanges, boards of trade, or similar entities, and non-standardized derivatives contracts traded in the over-the-counter market.
The investment seeks long-term capital growth with reduced volatility over time.

The fund's managers consider equity securities to include, among others, domestic or foreign common stocks, securities convertible into common stocks, securities that carry the right to buy common stocks, preferred securities, and domestic and foreign exchange-traded fund (ETFs).

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.


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.
