Description
The investment seeks total return greater than that of its benchmark, the MSCI ACWI ex USA. The fund invests substantially all of its assets in GMO International Equity Allocation Fund ("IEAF"), a series of GMO Trust. Under normal circumstances, the fund invests (including through investment in the underlying funds) at least 80% of its assets in equities. The term "equities" refers to direct and indirect (e.g., through the underlying funds) investments in common and preferred stocks and other stock-related securities, such as convertible securities, depositary receipts, and equity real estate investment trusts (REITs) and income trusts.
The investment seeks investment results that correspond generally to the price and yield performance, before fees and expenses, of the Northern Trust International Quality Dividend IndexSM. The fund will invest at least 80% of its total assets in the securities of the underlying index and in American ADRs and Global GDRs based on the securities in the index. The index is designed to provide exposure to a high-quality, income-oriented portfolio of international equity securities issued by non-U.S.-based companies, with an emphasis on long-term capital growth and a targeted overall volatility similar to that of the Northern Trust International Large Cap IndexSM.

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.
