The investment seeks total return over the long term. Under normal circumstances, the fund invests at least 80% of its total assets in equity instruments and related derivative instruments issued by, or tied economically to, companies located in developed markets. It pursues its investment objective by taking both long and short positions in a variety of developed market equity instruments. The fund may invest in securities of issuers of any market capitalization and in securities denominated in either U.S. dollars or foreign currencies.
The investment seeks investment results, before fees and expenses that track the performance of the FTSE RAFITM US 1000 Long/Short Total Return Index. The fund invests in securities and derivatives that ProShare Advisors believes, in combination, should track the performance of the index. The index allocates an aggregate equal dollar amount to both long and short equity positions each time that the index rebalances. To be "long" means to hold or have long exposure to an asset with the expectation that its value will increase over time. The fund is non-diversified.
The investment seeks capital appreciation with low volatility and reduced correlation to equities and interest rates. The fund seeks to achieve its investment objective by implementing a strategic arbitrage strategy comprised of: convertible arbitrage, credit/rates relative value arbitrage, equity arbitrage and volatility arbitrage. It seeks to employ a "market neutral," strategy, meaning that the fund's returns are not intended to be closely correlated to the stock market as a whole, interest rates, or a particular market index. 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.
