The investment seeks long-term capital appreciation. The fund invests mainly in equity securities (growth or value stocks or both) of Asian or Pacific Basin companies of any size that the advisor believes have favorable investment potential. Under normal circumstances, the managers invest at least 80% of the fund's net assets in equity securities of Asian or Pacific Basin companies, other than Japanese, Australian or New Zealand companies. It may invest in both developed countries and emerging markets.
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 long-term growth of capital through investments primarily in the common stocks of companies located (or with primary operations) in Asia (excluding Japan). The fund will normally invest at least 80% of its net assets (including any borrowings for investment purposes) in Asian companies (excluding Japanese companies). For purposes of determining whether the fund invests at least 80% of its net assets in Asian companies, it relies on the country assigned to a security by MSCI, Inc. or another unaffiliated data provider. 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.
