The investment seeks to provide capital appreciation. It is expected that no more than 25% of the fund's total assets will be dedicated to initial and variation margin payments relating to the fund's derivative transactions. The advisor expects that under normal market conditions the fund will invest at least 75% of its total assets in money market and other short-term, high-quality securities. The fund will concentrate its investments in the financial services industry, which means it will normally invest at least 25% of its total assets in securities and other obligations of issuers in such industry.
The investment seeks capital appreciation and capital preservation in all market conditions, with low volatility and low correlation to the U.S. equity market. The fund invests, directly or indirectly through affiliated and unaffiliated funds, primarily in (i) long and short call and put options on Standard & Poor's 500 Index futures contracts and (ii) in cash, cash equivalents (including affiliated and unaffiliated money market funds), and other liquid investments. It seeks to achieve its investment objective by buying and selling options and option spreads on stock index futures. The fund is non-diversified.
The investment seeks to achieve capital appreciation with moderate correlation to and with less volatility than the S&P 500 Index. The fund seeks to achieve its investment objective by allocating its assets between two broad strategies: (1) the Equity Strategy and (2) the Hedge Strategy. It pursues its equity strategy by investing in a combination of (i) derivatives instruments, and/or (ii) exchange traded funds ("ETFs") or other investment companies that seek to track the composition and/or performance of selected equity indexes. The fund also uses an overlay strategy to hedge the fund's overall exposure to the equity markets. It 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.
