Description
The investment seeks to achieve long-term total return which matches the performance of the MSCI KLD 400 Social ex Fossil Fuels Index (the "underlying index"). The fund invests substantially all of its assets in the common stocks which make up the underlying index. The underlying index is comprised of the common stocks of the approximately 400 companies in the MSCI KLD 400 Social Index, minus the stocks of the companies that explore for, extract, produce, manufacture or refine coal, oil or gas or produce or transmit electricity derived from fossil fuels or transmit natural gas or have carbon reserves included in the KLD400 Index.
The investment seeks capital appreciation. The fund invests at least 80% of its net assets (plus any borrowings for investment purposes) in equity securities of environmentally sustainable domestic companies. It invests primarily in the securities of medium and large capitalization companies that Brown Advisory LLC (the "Adviser") believes (1) have prospects for above average earnings growth in the future, and (2) effectively implement environmentally sustainable business strategies to drive their earnings growth. Medium and large capitalization companies are those companies with market capitalizations generally greater than $2 billion at time of purchase.
The investment seeks capital appreciation. The fund normally invests at least 80% of its net assets (plus borrowings for investment purposes) in companies believed by the fund's investment adviser to provide good workplaces for their employees. Companies with good workplaces usually are able to recruit and retain better employees, and perform at a higher level than competitors in terms of innovation, productivity, customer loyalty and profitability. These companies must, in the adviser's opinion, be undervalued, but they must also have good prospects for long-term capital appreciation over the course of the expected holding period.

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.
