The investment seeks long-term capital appreciation with an emphasis on absolute (positive) returns and low sensitivity to traditional financial market indices such as the S&P 500® Index. The fund's investment adviser, believes that there are important benefits that come from investing through skilled asset managers whose strategies, when combined, seek to provide attractive long-term risk-adjusted returns, lower volatility and lower sensitivity to traditional market measures. Absolute selects for the fund asset managers whose investment strategies, relative to their peers, seek to preserve capital and tend to perform differently over a complete market cycle.
The investment seeks investment results, before fees and expenses, that track the performance of the Merrill Lynch Factor Model-Exchange Series (the "benchmark"). The fund invests in securities and derivatives that ProShare Advisors believes, in combination, should track the performance of the benchmark. The benchmark seeks to provide the risk and return characteristics of the hedge fund asset class by targeting a high correlation to the HFRI Fund Weighted Composite Index (the "HFRI"). The HFRI is designed to reflect hedge fund industry performance through an equally weighted composite of over 2000 constituent funds. 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.
