Description
The investment seeks capital growth. The fund will usually purchase equity securities of foreign companies. Its equity securities will generally consist of common stock, depositary receipts and preferred stock. It may also invest a portion of its assets in forward currency exchange contracts, non-leveraged futures and option contracts, notes, bonds and other debt securities of companies, and obligations of foreign governments and their agencies, or other similar securities. The fund may also invest up to 20% of its net assets in the securities of emerging market (non-developed) countries.
The investment seeks to provide long-term capital appreciation. The fund invests predominantly in the stocks of companies located outside the United States and is expected to diversify its assets in countries across developed and emerging markets. In selecting stocks, the fund's advisors evaluate foreign markets around the world and choose large-, mid-, and small-capitalization companies considered to have above-average growth potential. The fund uses multiple investment advisors.

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.
