The following are SCAUX weaknesses from our perspective:

  • SCAUX net assets are $123.80 million. This fund is not a popular choice with retail investors.
  • SCAUX 3-year return is -0.91%, which is lower than the 3-year return of the benchmark index (Russell 1000 TR USD), 13.87%.
  • SCAUX 5-year return is 3.48%, which is lower than the 5-year return of the benchmark index (Russell 1000 TR USD), 13.87%.
  • SCAUX 10-year return is 6.75%, which is lower than the 10-year return of the benchmark index (Russell 1000 TR USD), 14.13%.
  • SCAUX expense ratio is 1.18%, which is not negligible. Is the fund expensive to you, and does it align to your investment strategy?
  • Warning: this fund has a 12b1 and front-end sales fee. The maximum 12b1 fee is 0.25%, while the maximum front-end sales load is 5.5%. A 12b-1 fee is an annual marketing or distribution fee on a mutual fund. Front-end sales load, also known as sales charge, is a fee paid when mutual funds shares are purchased. Those fees are subtracted from your total investable assets.
