The investment seeks to replicate, as closely as possible, before the deduction of expenses, the performance of the MSCI EAFE Index. Under normal circumstances, the fund invests at least 80% of assets, determined at the time of purchase, in stocks of companies included in the EAFE (Reg. TM) Index and in derivative instruments, such as futures contracts, options and forward currency contracts that provide exposure to the stocks of companies in the index. The fund's securities are weighted to attempt to make the fund's total investment characteristics similar to those of the index as a whole.
The investment seeks to provide investment results that correspond to the total return of foreign stock markets. The fund normally invests at least 80% of assets in common stocks included in the MSCI EAFE Index, which represents the performance of foreign stock markets. It 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, and country weightings to attempt to replicate the returns of the MSCI EAFE Index.
The investment seeks to track the performance of the FTSE Developed All Cap ex US Index. The fund employs an indexing investment approach designed to track the performance of the FTSE Developed All Cap ex US Index, a market-capitalization-weighted index that is made up of approximately 3,700 common stocks of large-, mid-, and small-cap companies located in Canada and the major markets of Europe and the Pacific region. The adviser attempts to replicate the target index by investing all, or substantially all, of its assets in the stocks that make up the index, holding each stock in approximately the same proportion as its weighting in the index.

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.
