Description
The investment seeks capital appreciation. The fund utilizes a rules based investment process and may invest in securities representing the approximately 130 sub-sectors of the primary sectors of the S&P 500​® Index, international equities, fixed income, alternatives, and/or cash equivalents (high-quality short-term securities). Allocations to each asset class are based on quantitative models. The fund has the flexibility to invest in any combination of the sub-sectors, international equities, fixed income, alternatives, and high-quality short-term securities.
The investment seeks to maximize total return, consisting of a combination of long-term capital appreciation and current income, while moderating risk and volatility in the portfolio. The fund operates as a fund of funds, investing primarily in registered mutual funds, including exchange-traded funds ("ETFs"). The funds in which the fund may invest are referred to herein as the "underlying funds." The Advisor believes that investing in underlying funds provides the fund with an efficient means of creating a portfolio that provides investors with indirect exposure to a broad range of securities.
The investment seeks capital appreciation with capital preservation as a secondary objective. The fund invests primarily in exchange-traded funds ("ETFs"), open-end investment companies (mutual funds) and closed-end funds that each invests primarily in common stocks, fixed income securities including convertible securities, or alternative assets. It will invest without restriction as to capitalization, sector, country, currency, credit quality or maturity. Investments in fixed income securities may include underlying funds that invest in non-investment grade fixed income securities, commonly known as "high yield" or "junk" bonds.

Similarity

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.
