Description
The investment seeks long-term capital appreciation. Under normal market conditions, the fund seeks to achieve its investment objective by investing at least 80% of its net assets, which include borrowings for investment purposes, in the common and preferred stocks of companies located in Asia ex Japan, which consists of all countries and markets in Asia excluding Japan but including all other developed, emerging, and frontier countries and markets in the Asian region.
The investment seeks to track the investment results of the MSCI Emerging Markets (EM) Asia Index. The fund generally will invest at least 90% of its assets in the component securities of the underlying index and in investments that have economic characteristics that are substantially identical to the component securities of the underlying index. The underlying index may include large-, mid- or small-capitalization companies. Components of the underlying index primarily include consumer discretionary, financials, industrials and information technology companies.
The investment seeks to provide investment results that, before fees and expenses, correspond generally to the total return performance of an index based upon the emerging markets of the Asia Pacific region. In seeking to track the performance of the S&P Asia Pacific Emerging BMI Index (the "index"), the fund employs a sampling strategy, which means that the fund is not required to purchase all of the securities represented in the index. The index is a market capitalization weighted index designed to define and measure the investable universe of publicly traded companies domiciled in emerging Asian Pacific markets. 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.

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.
