Description
The investment seeks to achieve long-term total return which matches the performance of the MSCI World ex USA SRI ex Fossil Fuels Index. The fund invests substantially all of its assets in the common stocks which make up the MSCI World ex USA SRI ex Fossil Fuels Index. The underlying index is comprised of the common stocks of the companies in the MSCI World ex USA SRI Index, minus the stocks of the companies that explore for, extract, produce, manufacture or refine coal, oil or gas or produce or transmit electricity derived from fossil fuels or transmit natural gas or have carbon reserves included in the World ex USA SRI Index.
The investment seeks to track the investment results of the MSCI EAFE ESG Focus 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 underlying index is composed of large- and mid-capitalization developed market equities, excluding the U.S. and Canada that have positive environmental, social and governance characteristics as identified by the index provider. The fund is non-diversified.
The investment seeks a favorable long-term total return that reflects the investment performance of the overall foreign equity markets while giving special consideration to certain environmental, social and governance ("ESG") criteria. Under normal circumstances, the fund invests at least 80% of its assets in equity securities of foreign issuers. The advisor attempts to achieve the return of the foreign equity markets, as represented by its benchmark index, the Morgan Stanley Capital International EAFE® (Europe, Australasia, Far East) Index (the "MSCI EAFE® Index"), while investing in companies whose activities are consistent with the fund's ESG criteria.

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.

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.
