Description
The investment seeks capital appreciation by pursuing long-term positive returns independent of market cycles. Under normal market conditions, the Adviser will typically use a variety of derivative instruments, including futures and forward contracts, to achieve long and short exposures to the returns of global developed and emerging market equity and fixed-income securities, indices, currencies and commodities. It will invest at least 50% of its total assets in money market and other short-term, high-quality securities managed by the Subadviser. The fund is non-diversified.
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 investment seeks to achieve long-term returns with lower risk and lower volatility than the stock market, and with relatively low correlation to stock and bond market indexes. The fund's strategy is to engage a number of established investment managers as sub-advisors to offer investors a mix of strategies that the advisor believes offer risk-return characteristics that are attractive individually and even more compelling collectively. The fund is intended to be used by investors as a source of diversification for traditional stock and bond portfolios to reduce volatility and potentially enhance returns relative to various measures of risk.

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.

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.
