The investment seeks long-term capital appreciation. The fund seeks positive returns unrelated to the broad global market by selecting both long and short positions in equity securities from anywhere in the world while applying measures that attempt to control for risk. The subadviser buys equity securities the fund's manager considers to be undervalued ("long positions") and it sells short equity securities the fund's manager considers to be overvalued ("short positions").
The investment seeks total return. The fund invests primarily in securities of domestic and foreign issuers that the fund's investment adviser, believes provide attractive opportunities for appreciation or investment income. The Adviser seeks to limit excessive risk of capital loss by utilizing various investment strategies, including investing in value oriented common stocks, i.e., common stocks that trade at a significant discount to the Adviser's assessment of their "private market value" virtually risk free U.S. Treasury Bills, and by utilizing certain "arbitrage" strategies. It is non-diversified.
The investment seeks performance results that correspond to the price and yield performance, before fees and expenses, of the Dow Jones U.S. Thematic Market Neutral Size Index. The fund invests at least 80% of its net assets (plus any borrowings for investment purposes) in common stock, including the short positions, in the Target Size Index. The Target Size Index is a market neutral index that is dollar-neutral. As such, it identifies long and short securities positions of approximately equal dollar amounts. In choosing to track a market neutral index, the fund seeks to limit the effects of general market movements on the fund.

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.
