The investment seeks long-term growth of capital. The fund normally invests at least 80% of its assets (net assets plus any borrowings for investment purposes) in common stocks. It primarily invests in common stocks of U.S. companies with market capitalizations that, at the time of investment, are similar to companies in the Standard & Poor's 500® Index and the Russell 1000® Index. The fund seeks to construct a broadly-diversified portfolio across sectors and industries using quantitative analysis to identify undervalued and overvalued securities. It may invest all or a portion of its assets in investment grade notes and bonds, cash and cash equivalents.
The investment seeks to track the price and total return performance, before fees and expenses, of the Diamond Hill Valuation-Weighted 500 index. The fund invests at least 80% of the fund's total assets (exclusive of any collateral held from securities lending) in the component securities of the index. The index is composed of the common stock of approximately 500 U.S.-listed companies weighted based on a proprietary, patent-pending valuation methodology developed by Diamond Hill Capital Management, Inc., the fund's investment adviser.
The investment seeks to provide a tax-efficient investment return consisting of long-term capital appreciation. The fund purchases stocks that pay lower dividends and are included in the Russell 1000 Index-an index that is made up of the stocks of large- and mid-capitalization U.S. companies. It uses statistical methods to "sample" the index, aiming to minimize taxable dividends while approximating the other characteristics of the index. The expected result is a portfolio that will loosely track the total return performance of the index, but with lower taxable income distributions.

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.
