The investment seeks maximum total return. The fund normally invests at least 80% of its net assets (plus the amount of borrowings, if any, for investment purposes) in small- and mid-cap equity securities (U.S. equity securities, ADRs and foreign securities trading on U.S. markets). In the small-cap sleeve, the sub-adviser generally will invest in common stocks of companies with small capitalizations that are attractively valued and possess low price cash flow ratios or, in the case of certain financial stocks, low price/earnings ratios and/or low price/book ratios. The fund may invest up to 10% of its total assets in the securities of foreign issuers.
The investment seeks to track the performance of a benchmark index that measures the investment return of mid-capitalization value stocks in the United States. The fund employs an indexing investment approach designed to track the performance of the S&P MidCap 400® Value Index, which represents the value companies, as determined by the index sponsor, of the S&P MidCap 400 Index. The Advisor attempts to replicate the target index by investing all, or substantially all, of its assets in the stocks that make up the index, holding each stock in approximately the same proportion as its weighting in the index.
The investment seeks investment results that generally correspond (before fees and expenses) to the price and yield of the S&P MidCap 400® Low Volatility Index. The fund generally will invest at least 90% of its total assets in common stocks that comprise the underlying index. Strictly in accordance with its procedures and mandated guidelines, S&P DJI selects for inclusion in the underlying index the 80 securities that it has determined have the lowest volatility over the past 12 months out of the 400 medium capitalization range securities that are contained in the S&P MidCap 400® Index. 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.
