The investment seeks total return through a combination of growth and income. The fund's investment adviser uses the Davis Investment Discipline to invest at least 80% of the fund's net assets, plus any borrowing for investment purposes, in securities issued by companies principally engaged in the real estate industry. The fund invests principally in common stocks of domestic companies and may invest in foreign companies (including indirect holdings of a foreign issuer's common stock through depositary receipts).
The investment seeks to provide a high level of income and moderate long-term capital appreciation by tracking the performance of a benchmark index that measures the performance of publicly traded equity REITs. The fund employs an indexing investment approach designed to track the performance of the MSCI US REIT Index. The index is composed of stocks of publicly traded equity real estate investment trusts (known as REITs). The adviser attempts to replicate the index by investing all, or substantially all, of its assets in the stocks that make up the index, holding each stock in approximately the same proportion as its weighting in the index.
The investment seeks income with capital appreciation as a secondary goal. Under normal conditions, the fund invests at least 80% of its net assets plus borrowings for investment purposes, if any, in securities of real estate companies. Under normal conditions, the Advisor expects to invest principally in common stock and units of beneficial interest of real estate investment trusts ("REITs"), preferred stock, rights to purchase common stock and securities which may convert into common stock of real estate companies. 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.


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.
