Description
The investment seeks total return over the long term. Under normal conditions, the fund invests at least 80% of its total assets in global equity instruments and related derivative instruments issued by, or tied economically to, companies in emerging markets. It may invest in securities of issuers of any market capitalization and in securities denominated in either U.S. dollars or foreign currencies. The fund pursues its investment objective by taking both long and short positions in a variety of global equity instruments. It may invest up to 20% of its assets in equity instruments issued by or based on companies located outside of emerging markets.

Similarity

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.
