Description
The investment seeks to provide long-term capital appreciation. The fund invests primarily in the equity securities of small-capitalization companies located in numerous countries outside the United States that an advisor believes offer the potential for capital appreciation. In doing so, each advisor considers, among other things, whether the company has the potential for above-average earnings growth, whether the company's securities are attractively valued, and whether the company has a sustainable competitive advantage. It uses multiple investment advisors.
The investment seeks to track the investment results of the MSCI EAFE Small Cap Index composed of small-capitalization developed market equities, excluding the U.S. and Canada. The fund generally will invest at least 90% of its assets in the component securities of the underlying index and in investments that have economic characteristics that are substantially identical to the component securities of the underlying index. The index represents the small-cap segment of the MSCI EAFE IMI Index.

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.

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.
