Description
The investment seeks to provide current income that exceeds the fund's benchmark index and that grows over a period of years; secondarily the fund seeks long-term capital appreciation. The fund seeks to achieve its objectives by investing at least 80% of its net assets in small cap dividend-paying common stocks. It may invest the balance of its assets in preferred stocks, convertible bonds, U.S. Treasury securities (including Treasury bills, notes and bonds), closed-end investment companies, and master limited partnerships. The fund may invest up to 20% of its net assets in securities of issuers domiciled outside the U.S.
The investment seeks to track the investment results of the S&P SmallCap 600® (the "underlying index"), which measures the performance of the small-capitalization sector of the U.S. equity market. The fund generally invests at least 90% of its assets in securities of the underlying index and in depositary receipts representing securities of the underlying index. It may invest the remainder of its assets in certain futures, options and swap contracts, cash and cash equivalents, as well as in securities not included in the underlying index, but which the advisor believes will help the fund track the underlying index.
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 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.
