The investment seeks long-term capital appreciation. The fund invests at least 80% of its net assets, plus any borrowings for investment purposes, in equity securities, including common stocks, American Depositary Receipts and Global Depositary Receipts, of emerging country issuers. It generally invests in at least three emerging countries, and, at times, may invest a substantial portion of its assets in a single emerging country. The fund may invest in companies of any market capitalization, from larger, well-established companies to small, emerging growth companies.
The investment seeks capital appreciation. The fund invests normally at least 80% of assets in securities of issuers in emerging markets and other investments that are tied economically to emerging markets. It invests normally in common stocks and allocates investments across different emerging market countries. The fund uses fundamental analysis of factors such as each issuer's financial condition and industry position, as well as market and economic conditions, to select investments.
The investment seeks to provide long-term capital appreciation along with some current income; the fund seeks to mitigate adverse volatility in returns as a secondary objective. Normally, the fund seeks to achieve its investment objective by investing at least 80% of its total assets in dividend-paying common stocks, preferred stocks, convertible securities, and debt obligations of foreign companies, foreign governments and their agencies, where "total assets" means net assets, plus the amount of any borrowings for investment purposes. The fund can invest without constraint in the securities of companies located in developing countries.

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.
