MGC in Focus

The fund's goal is to track as closely as possible, before fees and expenses, the total return of the CRSP US Mega Cap Index. It has AUM of $3.88 billion and charges 7 basis points in annual fees.

Why the Move?

Furthermore, certain economic data releases are pointing toward economic recovery. This is making funds like MGC an attractive investment option.
