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 fund normally invests at least 80% of assets in common stocks included in the MSCI EAFE Index, which is a market capitalization-weighted index that is designed to measure the investable equity market performance for global investors in developed markets, excluding the U.S. & Canada.
The investment seeks long-term capital appreciation. The fund normally invests at least 65% of its total assets in a diversified portfolio of equity securities of companies located outside of the United States that the fund's sub-adviser considers to offer attractive valuations. It invests in a variety of countries throughout the world including emerging market countries and may, from time to time, invest more than 25% of its assets in any one country or group of countries. It may invest in companies of any size market capitalization.

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.
