The investment seeks to maximize capital appreciation. The fund uses a growth style of investment in equity securities, including common and preferred stocks. Under normal market conditions, the fund invests at least 80% of its net assets (plus the amount of borrowings for investment purposes) in the equity securities of U.S. micro-capitalization ("micro-cap") companies. For purposes of the fund, the investment adviser currently considers a company to be a micro-cap company if it is within the same market capitalization range at the time of investment as those included in the Russell Microcap® Growth Index. The fund is non-diversified.
The investment seeks capital appreciation through investments primarily in securities of small-sized growth companies. The fund invests primarily in equity securities in the form of common stock of small-sized growth companies. The Adviser defines small-sized companies as those, at the time of purchase, with market capitalizations up to the weighted median market capitalization of the Russell 2000 Growth Index at reconstitution, or companies with market capitalizations up to $1.5 billion, whichever is larger.

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.
