The investment seeks high potential capital appreciation. The fund is a risk-targeted portfolio that invests primarily in other Salient Funds (the "underlying funds") in order to gain exposure to global equity markets, global interest rate markets, global credit markets, and global commodity markets. Risk-targeted means a portfolio management process by which the Adviser seeks to maintain a consistent, chosen level of risk as measured by the annualized standard deviation of returns.
The investment seeks total return through a combination of capital appreciation and income. The fund invests predominantly in exchange-traded funds ("ETFs") that each invest primarily in domestic or foreign (1) equity securities, (2) fixed-income securities, (3) alternative/specialty securities or (4) cash equivalents. The adviser defines equity securities to include ETFs that invest primarily in equity securities, such as common and preferred stocks. It invests at least 80% of its assets (defined as net assets plus any borrowing for investment purposes) measured at the time of purchase in ETFs.
The investment seeks primarily to achieve growth of principal and as a secondary objective, to protect principal. The fund seeks to achieve its objective by investing in the securities of other investment companies (including open-end funds, exchange-traded funds ("ETFs")) and closed-end funds. The Adviser allocates the fund's assets among underlying funds that focus on tactical asset management meaning underlying funds where the investment adviser to such underlying funds has the flexibility to transition assets into and out of any sector of the market and from stocks to bonds at any time based on existing and/or foreseeable market conditions.

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.
