Description
The investment seeks long-term growth of capital with an emphasis on high current income. Under normal circumstances, the fund invests at least 80% of the value of its net assets (plus borrowings for investment purposes) in equity securities. With respect to 10% of its total assets, the fund may use exchange-traded funds ("ETFs") to invest in particular sectors instead of investing directly in companies comprising those sectors.
The investment seeks to track the investment results of the MSCI USA Enhanced Value Index composed of U.S. large- and mid-capitalization stocks with value characteristics and relatively lower valuations. The fund generally will invest at least 90% of its assets in the component securities of the underlying index and may invest up to 10% of its assets in certain futures, options and swap contracts, cash and cash equivalents. The index is based on a traditional market capitalization-weighted parent index, the MSCI USA Index (the "parent index"). The parent index includes U.S. large- and mid- capitalization stocks.
The investment seeks long-term capital appreciation and income. The fund invests substantially all of its assets in U.S. common stocks, with a focus on value stocks-those that are generally out of favor with investors and that typically (but not always) have lower-than-average price/earnings (P/E) ratios. The advisor selects stocks of primarily large and mid-size companies by using a quantitative process to identify stocks that the advisor believes offer an appropriate balance between strong growth prospects and reasonable valuations relative to their industry peers.

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.
