The investment seeks to provide total return, from current income and gains from long-term capital appreciation. The fund is designed to provide investors with sustained exposure to domestic and foreign equity markets over time by using the adviser's "BuyWrite" strategy. "BuyWrite" is an investment strategy of writing (selling) calls options on a security owned by the fund to generate additional returns from the option premium. The fund also seeks returns by writing (selling) secured put options.
The investment seeks long-term capital appreciation and option premiums consistent with reasonable risk to principal. Under normal market circumstances, at least 80% of the value of the Portfolio's total assets (including borrowings for investment purposes) will be subject to secured option strategies, which are written covered call and/or secured put options on stock index ETFs, stock indices and/or individual stocks held by the Portfolio. The advisor intends to invest in a diversified portfolio of equity securities with generally similar risk and return characteristics as the Standard & Poor's 500® Index.
The investment seeks to provide consistent total return and, secondarily, to provide a high level of income and gains from option premiums. The fund invests, under normal conditions, primarily in common stocks of large- and mid-capitalization issuers that are, in the view of the fund's investment adviser, selling at a reasonable price in relation to their long-term earnings growth rates. It will invest at least 80% of its net assets in common stocks, with at least 65% of this amount invested in common stocks of large capitalization issuers that meet the fund's selection criteria.

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.
