The investment seeks to achieve long-term absolute returns. In seeking to achieve its aim of long-term absolute returns, the fund aims to hold a diversified portfolio and achieve long-term absolute returns in all market conditions over rolling five-year periods, with lower volatility than equity markets and in excess of inflation. The fund implements its strategy by investing globally either directly, or through derivatives, in a broad range of instruments, including, but not limited to, equity, fixed income, currency, commodity, credit derivative and cash instruments.
The investment seeks investment results before fees and expenses that track the performance of the Merrill Lynch Factor Model-Exchange Series. The fund invests in securities and derivatives that ProShare Advisors believes, in combination, should track the performance of the Benchmark. The Benchmark, established by Merrill Lynch International, 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 is designed to reflect hedge fund industry performance through an equally weighted composite of over 2000 constituent funds. 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.
