The investment seeks capital appreciation. The fund normally will invest at least 80% of its net assets (plus any borrowings made for investment purposes) in the equity securities, including common stocks and preferred stocks, of "small-cap companies." It may invest in convertible preferred stock and convertible debt securities. The fund may invest in foreign securities, including emerging market securities. It may invest in real estate investment trusts ("REITs"). The fund may invest in securities offered in initial public offerings ("IPOs").
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. It will provide shareholders with at least 60 days' notice prior to any material change in this 80% investment policy. 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 to track the performance of a benchmark index that measures the investment return of small-capitalization stocks in the United States. The fund employs an indexing investment approach designed to track the performance of the S&P SmallCap 600® Index. The Advisor attempts to replicate the target 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 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.
