The investment seeks capital appreciation; income is a secondary consideration. The fund invests at least 80% of its net assets in securities of non-U.S. issuers. The investment manager focuses the fund's investments on securities believed to be available at market prices less than their value based on certain recognized or objective criteria (intrinsic value). It also invests in merger arbitrage securities and the debt and equity of distressed companies. The fund invests primarily in securities of Asian and European companies that the investment manager believes are undervalued.
The investment seeks investment results that correspond generally to the price and yield (before the fund's fees and expenses) of an equity index called the Dow Jones Global Select Dividend Index(SM). The fund will normally invest at least 90% of its net assets (plus the amount of any borrowings for investment purposes) in common stocks or in depositary receipts representing securities in the index. The index is an indicated annual dividend yield weighted index of 100 stocks selected from the developed-market portion of the Dow Jones World IndexSM.
The investment seeks long-term capital growth. The fund invests primarily in foreign equity securities that the adviser believes are undervalued but may invest in U.S. securities to a limited extent. The Adviser seeks to construct a diversified portfolio of stocks from a variety of industries and countries. The fund invests primarily in equity securities of foreign issuers, but also invests on a more limited basis in U.S. equity securities when opportunities appear attractive.

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.
