Description
The investment seeks above-average, long-term appreciation. The fund normally will invest at least 80% of its net assets (including borrowings for investment purposes) in U.S. common stocks issued by small cap companies. For this purpose, small cap companies are defined as companies whose market capitalization at the time of purchase come within the non-float adjusted range represented by companies in the S&P SmallCap 600 Total Return Index as of December 31 of the preceding year. The S&P SmallCap 600 Total Return Index is a widely used benchmark for small cap performance and is rebalanced continuously.
The investment seeks to provide investment results that, before fees and expenses, correspond generally to the total return performance of the Russell 2000® Low Volatility Index. The fund generally invests substantially all, but at least 80%, of its total assets in the securities comprising the index. The index includes small cap U.S. equity securities and is designed to capture stocks with low volatility. Volatility is a measure of a security's variability in total returns based on its historic behavior. The fund is non-diversified.
The investment seeks long-term capital appreciation. The fund invests primarily in the common stock of small U.S. companies. It will invest its assets so that at least 80% of its net assets (plus any borrowings for investment purposes) are invested in small companies. The fund adviser's investment strategy utilizes a small-cap approach by selecting most of its investments from companies listed in the Russell 2000® Index. The fund's investments may include, but are not limited to, equity securities of domestic issuers.

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.
