The investment seeks long-term capital appreciation. The fund invests at least 80% of its total assets in equity securities of large-capitalization companies and up to 25% of the fund's total assets in equity securities of foreign issuers through ADRs and similar investments. It invests principally in equity securities of large-capitalization companies that the advisor believes offer the potential for capital growth. The manager defines large-capitalization companies as those with market capitalizations within the range of the Russell 1000® Index at the time of purchase.
The investment seeks to track the investment results of the Russell 3000 Growth Index (the "underlying index"). The fund generally invests at least 90% of its assets in securities of the underlying index and in depositary receipts representing securities of the underlying index. The underlying index measures the performance of equity securities of Russell 3000 Index issuers with relatively higher price-to-book ratios and higher forecasted growth.
The investment seeks to track the performance of a benchmark index. The fund employs an indexing investment approach designed to track the performance of the CRSP US Mega Cap Growth Index. The index is a float-adjusted, market-capitalization-weighted index designed to measure equity market performance of mega-capitalization growth stocks in the United States. The Advisor attempts to replicate the target index by investing all, or substantially all, of its assets in the stocks that make up the index, holding each stock in approximately the same proportion as its weighting in the index.

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.
