Description
The investment seeks long-term growth of capital and income. The fund invests primarily in common stocks, most of which have a history of paying dividends. It may invest up to 15% of its assets, at the time of purchase, in securities of issuers domiciled outside the United States. Although the fund focuses on investments in medium to larger capitalization companies, the fund's investments are not limited to a particular capitalization size.
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 investment seeks to replicate as closely as possible, before fees and expenses, the price and yield performance of the Morningstar® Wide Moat Focus IndexSM. The fund normally invests at least 80% of its total assets in securities that comprise the fund's benchmark index. The Wide Moat Focus Index is comprised of securities issued by companies that Morningstar, Inc. ("Morningstar") determines to have sustainable competitive advantages based on a proprietary methodology that considers quantitative and qualitative factors ("wide moat companies"). The fund is non-diversified.

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.
