Description
The investment seeks to provide capital growth, with current income as a secondary goal. The fund invests at least 80% of its net assets in the common stocks of companies that, in the opinion of the fund's management, meet traditional investment standards and conduct their business in a manner that contributes to the enhancement of the quality of life in America. Its investment strategy combines a disciplined investment process that consists of computer modeling techniques, fundamental analysis and risk management with a social investment process.
The investment seeks to track the investment results of the MSCI KLD 400 Social Index composed of U.S. companies that have positive environmental, social and governance characteristics as identified by the index provider. The fund generally invests at least 90% of its assets in securities of the underlying index and in depositary receipts representing securities of the underlying index. The underlying index is a free float-adjusted market capitalization index designed to target U.S. companies that have positive environmental, social and governance ("ESG") characteristics.
The investment seeks long-term capital appreciation. The fund pursues its objective by seeking to enhance its performance over that of its primary benchmark index by 1) changing the relative weighting in the fund's portfolio of growth versus value style securities in the index (style tilt) and 2) utilizing computer-aided, quantitative analysis of valuation, growth, dividend yield, industry and other factors to compensate for the exclusion of certain index securities due to the fund's socially responsible investment policies. It invests at least 80% of its assets in the securities of companies included in the fund's benchmark.

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.
