Description
The investment seeks long-term capital appreciation. The Portfolio is a Feeder Portfolio and pursues its objective by investing substantially all of its assets in its corresponding master fund, the Dimensional Emerging Markets Value Fund (the "Emerging Markets Value Fund" or "master fund"), which has the same investment objective and policies as the Portfolio. As a non-fundamental policy, under normal circumstances, it will invest at least 80% of its net assets in emerging markets investments that are defined in the Prospectus as Approved Markets securities.
The investment seeks to track as closely as possible, before fees and expenses, the total return of the Russell RAFI Emerging Markets Large Company Index. The fund will invest at least 80% of its net assets in stocks included in the index, including depositary receipts representing securities of the index; which may be in the form of American Depositary receipts, Global Depositary receipts and European Depositary receipts. The index measures the performance of the large company size segment by fundamental overall company scores, which are created using as the universe the companies included in the Russell Emerging Markets Index.

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.
