The following are ACERX weaknesses from our perspective:

  • ACERX net assets are $375.40 million. This fund is not a popular choice with retail investors.
  • ACERX 3-year return is 9.23%, which is lower than the 3-year return of the benchmark index (Russell 1000 Value TR USD), 11.31%.
  • ACERX 5-year return is 10.04%, which is lower than the 5-year return of the benchmark index (Russell 1000 Value TR USD), 11.86%.
