The investment seeks long-term growth of capital. The fund's investment adviser uses the Davis Investment Discipline to invest at least 80% of the fund's net assets, plus any borrowing for investment purposes, in securities issued by companies principally engaged in the financial services sector. It invests principally in common stocks (including indirect holdings of common stock through depositary receipts). A company is principally engaged in financial services if it owns financial services-related assets that constitute at least 50% of the value of all of its assets, or if it derives at least 50% of its revenues from providing financial services.
The investment seeks investment results that generally correspond (before fees and expenses) to the price and yield of the KBW Nasdaq Property & Casualty Index (the "underlying index"). The fund generally invests at least 90% of its total assets in the securities of property and casualty insurance companies that comprise the underlying index. It generally invests in all of the securities comprising the underlying index in proportion to their weightings in the underlying index. The fund is non-diversified.
The investment seeks to replicate as closely as possible, before fees and expenses, the performance of the S&P 500® Equal Weight Index Financials Total Return. The underlying index is an unmanaged equal weighted version of the S&P 500® Financials Index that consists of the common stocks of the following industries: banks, diversified financials, brokerage, asset management insurance and real estate, including investment trusts that comprise the Financials sector of the S&P 500® Index. The fund is non-diversified.

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.
