The investment seeks long-term capital appreciation. The fund normally invests at least 80% of its net assets, plus any borrowings for investment purposes, in equity securities of companies that, at the time of purchase of the securities, have total market capitalization between (1) the higher of (a) $5 billion or (b) the company in either the Russell 2000 Growth Index or the MSCI USA Small Cap Index with the highest capitalization, and (2) the company in either index with the lowest capitalization, at any time during the most recent 12-month period as reported by either index. Both indexes are broad-based indexes of small capitalization stocks.
The investment seeks to replicate as closely as possible, before fees and expenses, the performance of the S&P SmallCap 600® Pure Growth Index Total Return (the "underlying index"). The fund invests primarily in equity securities to meet its investment objective of replicating the underlying index as closely as possible, before fees and expenses. The underlying index is narrow in focus, containing only those S&P SmallCap 600 ® companies with strong growth characteristics as selected by S&P. The fund is non-diversified.
The investment seeks long-term growth of capital. The fund will normally invest at least 80% of its net assets (including any borrowings for investment purposes) in equity securities issued by small-cap U.S. growth companies. While most assets will typically be invested in U.S. equity securities, the fund may invest up to 10% of its net assets in foreign stocks, including securities of emerging market issuers.

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.
