In terms of fees, this fund is on the more expensive side against its ETF peers. A soundly constructed and reasonably representative portfolio leaves this fund well positioned to achieve superior risk-adjusted returns relative to its Morningstar Category peers over the long term.

A fund with a high Sustainability Rating, but an above average fee that tracks a broadly representative and diversified benchmark.
