The investment seeks long-term capital appreciation. Under normal market conditions, the fund invests primarily in equity securities of companies with varying market capitalizations, which may include small-, mid- and large-capitalization companies. The fund's sub-adviser opportunistically seeks to identify under-valued companies considering absolute valuation and security pricing in the context of industry and market conditions.
The investment seeks investment results that, before fees and expenses, correspond generally to the total return performance of the S&P 1500 Low Valuation Tilt Index (the "index"). The fund employs a sampling strategy in seeking to track the index. It generally invests substantially all, but at least 80%, of its total assets in the securities. The index applies an alternative weighting methodology to the S&P Composite 1500 Index so that stocks with relatively low valuations (i.e., relatively "cheap") are overweight relative to the S&P Composite 1500 Index and stocks with relatively high valuations are underweight. The fund is non-diversified.
The investment seeks to track as closely as possible, before fees and expenses, the total return of the Russell Fundamental U.S. Index. The fund will invest at least 90% of its net assets in stocks included in the index. The index measures the performance of the constituent companies by fundamental overall company scores, which are created using as the universe the companies included in the Russell 3000® Index. It may invest up to 10% of its net assets in securities not included 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.
