Description
The investment seeks long-term capital growth. The fund diversifies its investments among many countries, predominantly those with mature markets (such as Europe and Canada). It invests at least 65% of its assets in companies with their headquarters and major assets and earnings outside the U.S. The fund diversifies its investments across industries, companies, and countries. It looks for companies with growing revenues and earnings, favoring companies trading for less than the adviser's assessment of intrinsic value, which typically means companies with low price/earnings multiples, low price to cash flow, and higher dividend yields.
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.

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.
