The investment seeks to achieve capital appreciation. The fund normally invests in a mix of equity securities and fixed income securities, which the adviser determines are undervalued, offer the potential for capital appreciation, or may offer appreciation with lower volatility than the overall market. It may invest in equity securities (including common stock, preferred stock, shares of other investment companies and equity- and commodity-based exchange-traded funds ("ETFs")), fixed income securities (including corporate bonds, government issued bonds, and fixed income-based ETFs), or may hold a portion of the portfolio in cash and cash equivalents.
The investment seeks to preserve and grow capital from investments in the U.S. and foreign equity, fixed income, commodity and currency markets, independent of market direction. The fund is considered a "fund of funds" that seeks to achieve its investment objective by primarily investing in other affiliated and unaffiliated exchange-traded funds ("ETFs") that offer diversified exposure, including inverse exposure, to global regions, countries, styles (market capitalization, value, growth, etc.) or sectors, and other exchange-traded products including, but not limited to, exchange-traded notes ("ETNs"), exchange-traded currency trusts, and closed-end funds.
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 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.
