The investment seeks current income and capital appreciation. The fund invests primarily in equity securities of companies in the S&P 900 Index. It focuses on large companies that have potential for long-term total return resulting from their earnings growth and willingness to consistently increase their dividends over time. The fund's portfolio management team uses fundamental research and quantitative analysis to select its investments, while seeking to maintain an investment portfolio with industry, sector, and capitalization weightings and other portfolio characteristics that generally are similar to those of the S&P 900 10-Year Dividend Growth Index.
The investment seeks the investment results of the MSCI USA Minimum Volatility (USD) Index. The fund will invest at least 90% of its assets in the component securities of the index and may invest up to 10% of its assets in certain futures, options and swap contracts, cash and cash equivalents. The index measures the performance of equity securities in the top 85% by market capitalization of equity securities listed on stock exchanges in the USA that, in the aggregate, have lower volatility relative to the broader U.S. equity market.
The investment seeks investment results that generally correspond (before fees and expenses) to the price and yield of the S&P 500® Quality Index. The fund's principal investment strategy will be to generally invest at least 90% of its total assets in the securities that comprise the underlying index. The index is constructed from the constituents of the S&P 500® Index that are of the highest quality-that is, stocks of companies that seek to generate higher revenue and cash flow than their counterparts through prudent use of assets and finances.

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.
