The investment seeks an investment objective of long-term total return. The fund seeks to achieve its investment objective by identifying and pursuing multiple "strategies" of the fund's subadviser, which are investment ideas and opportunities across and within a wide range of asset classes. The fund will utilize a large range of investments, including fixed income, currencies, equity, convertible securities (including contingent convertible securities), money market instruments, bank deposits, depositary receipts, collective investment vehicles, exchange-traded funds (ETFs) and derivative instruments to pursue its objective. It is non-diversified.
The investment seeks absolute return with low correlation to stocks and bonds. Under normal market conditions, the fund pursues its investment objective by investing in a diverse group of return drivers, each a type of risk premium (collectively, "risk premia"), across equity, fixed income, commodity, and currency asset classes. Risk premia refers to the return that is expected for assuming a particular market risk. It employs a proprietary multi-factor process to allocate the fund's assets across the various risk premia.

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.
