The investment seeks to provide long term capital appreciation and income generation; a secondary objective is to seek to preserve capital in down markets. The fund will invest primarily in equity securities of U.S. and foreign companies. It has a flexible investment strategy and may invest in equity securities regardless of market capitalization (small, medium, or large) and style (growth or value). The fund will normally be invested in at least three countries (one of which may be the United States) and will invest at least 40% of its net assets either long or short in securities of foreign companies (including depositary receipts).
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 to replicate, net of expenses, the S&P 500 Dynamic VEQTOR Total Return Index. The index seeks to provide broad equity market exposure with an implied volatility hedge by dynamically allocating its notional investments among three components: equity, volatility and cash. The equity component of the Index is represented by the S&P 500 Total Return Index and the volatility component of the Index is represented by the S&P 500 VIX Short-Term Futures 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.
