The investment seeks to track the price and yield performance, before fees and expenses, of the Zacks Earnings Small-Cap U.S. Index. Under normal circumstances, at least 80% of the fund's total assets (exclusive of collateral held from securities lending) will be invested in the component securities of the index. The fund may invest the remainder of its assets in cash and cash equivalents, such as repurchase agreements or money market instruments, or other instruments that Vident Investment Advisory, LLC, the sub-adviser to the fund (the "Sub-Adviser"), believes will help the fund track the index.
The investment seeks to provide investment results that, before fees and expenses, correspond generally to the total return performance of the Russell 2000® Index that tracks the performance of small capitalization exchange traded U.S. equity securities. The fund generally invests substantially all, but at least 80%, of its total assets in the securities comprising the index. The index measures the performance of the small-cap segment of the U.S. equity market. It may purchase a subset of the securities in the index in an effort to hold a portfolio of securities with generally the same risk and return characteristics of the index. 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.
