The investment seeks capital appreciation with low correlation to the equity markets. The fund seeks to achieve its investment objective primarily by writing short-term call and put options on S&P 500 Index futures, and investing in cash and cash equivalents, including affiliated and unaffiliated money market funds, and other high-quality short-term fixed income securities such as U.S. Treasury securities. It invests mainly in options on S&P 500 Index futures, but may invest in other futures markets including agricultural products, metals, currencies, interest rates and other financial instruments. The fund is non-diversified.
The investment seeks to achieve positive returns that uses as a benchmark, the Morningstar Diversified Futures Index. The fund is an actively managed exchange-traded fund that seeks to achieve positive returns that are not directly correlated to broad market equity or fixed income returns. It seeks to exceed the performance of the Benchmark by actively selecting investments for the fund with varying maturities from the underlying components of the Benchmark. The fund is non-diversified.
The investment seeks positive absolute returns that have a low correlation to the returns of global stock and bond markets. In pursuing its investment objective, the manager expects to primarily focus, under normal circumstances, on investment in long or short positions in futures contracts for which the underlying reference asset is an index comprised primarily of non-U.S. issuers, although for brief periods of time the fund may take temporary cash positions when the advisor's investment methodology dictates that the fund exit a number of its positions simultaneously. 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.
