Description
The investment seeks to provide long-term growth of income and capital appreciation. The fund invests at least 80% of its net assets in a portfolio of dividend-paying common stocks and preferred stocks that have the potential to offer long-term growth of income and capital appreciation. It invests primarily in companies with large market capitalizations similar to those of companies included in the Russell 1000 Value Index, typically using a "value approach." The fund may also invest up to 20% of its net assets in bonds and other fixed-income securities of any maturity. It may invest up to 25% of its net assets in securities of foreign issuers.
The investment seeks to track the investment results of the MSCI USA Equal Weighted Index. The fund generally will invest at least 90% of its assets in the component securities of the underlying index and may invest up to 10% of its assets in certain futures, options and swap contracts, cash and cash equivalents. The index is an equally-weighted securities index that measures the performance of equity securities in the top 85% by market capitalization of equity securities listed on stock exchanges in the United States and which represents an alternative weighting scheme to its market capitalization-weighted parent index, the MSCI USA Index.
The investment seeks investment results that correspond generally to the price and yield performance, before fees and expenses, of the Morningstar® US Market Factor Tilt IndexSM. Under normal circumstances, the fund will invest at least 80% of its total assets in the securities of the underlying index. The underlying index reflects the performance of a selection of U.S. equity securities that is designed to provide broad exposure to the overall U.S. equities market, with increased exposure (or a "tilt") to small-capitalization stocks and value stocks. It may also invest up to 20% of its assets in cash and cash equivalents.

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.
