Description
The investment seeks long-term capital appreciation. Under normal circumstances, the fund invests at least 80% of its net assets plus any borrowings for investment purposes in equity securities. It primarily invests in a portfolio of equity securities that is tied economically to a number of countries throughout the world, typically three or more. The fund's investments in equity securities may include, for example, common stocks, American Depositary Receipts or other U.S. listings of foreign common stocks, and exchange-traded funds ("ETFs").
The investment seeks long-term capital appreciation. The fund invests mainly in a limited number of large capitalization (namely, companies with more than $5 billion market capitalization at the time of initial purchase) value stocks of foreign companies (also referred to as non-U.S. companies). It normally invests at least 65% of its total assets in the equity securities of non-U.S. companies. The majority of the fund's investments will be in companies that have global operations rather than in companies whose business is limited to a particular country or geographic region. The fund is non-diversified.
The investment seeks maximum long-term capital growth. The focus of the investment process is on individual companies, not on selection of countries or regions.

The fund invests primarily in developed markets but also may invest in emerging and less developed 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.

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.
