The investment seeks capital appreciation and income. The fund offers investors exposure to emerging markets. The securities chosen for inclusion in the fund are those that, in the opinion of the subadviser, are high quality companies that pay above average dividends, have above average dividend growth potential, strong balance sheets and cash flow, and adhere to better corporate governance. Under normal circumstances, the fund invests at least 80% of its assets in equity securities of issuers located in emerging markets countries; such issuers may be of any capitalization.
The investment seeks to provide investment results that correspond to the total return of emerging stock markets. The fund normally invests at least 80% of the fund's assets in securities included in the MSCI Emerging Markets Index and in depository receipts representing securities included in the index. The adviser uses statistical sampling techniques based on such factors as capitalization, industry exposures, dividend yield, price/earnings (P/E) ratio, price/book (P/B) ratio, earnings growth, country weightings, and the effect of foreign taxes to attempt to replicate the returns of the index.
The investment seeks to track the investment results of the MSCI Emerging Markets Investable Market Index. The fund generally will invest at least 90% of its assets in the component securities of the underlying index and in investments that have economic characteristics that are substantially identical to the component securities of the underlying index. The index is designed to measure large-, mid- and small-cap equity market performance in the global emerging markets.

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.
