The investment seeks maximum long-term capital growth. The fund invests in the stocks of large U.S. companies are undervalued and have great appreciation potential. It invests at least 65% of its net assets (at market value at the time of purchase) in the common stocks of large companies that have market capitalizations greater than $5.0 billion. The fund may emphasize sectors more or less than the S&P 500. It may also invest in stock index options. The fund may also take defensive positions when the manager believes that the overall stock market is highly valued or that market conditions warrant it.
The investment seeks to replicate, net of expenses, the Credit Suisse Tremont Long/Short Equity Hedge Fund Index. The index tracks the performance of non-hedge fund, transparent market measures.
The investment seeks investment results that correspond generally, before fees and expenses, to the performance of its underlying index, the VelocityShares Volatility Hedged Large Cap Index. The fund will seek to achieve its investment objective by investing at least 80% of its net assets (plus any borrowings for investment purposes) in underlying index ETFs. The underlying index consists of an 85% allocation to the Underlying Large Cap ETFs (split evenly between each Underlying Large Cap ETF) and a 15% allocation to the Underlying Volatility ETFs (such allocation being the "Volatility Component"). 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.


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.
