CARZ Fund Description

The First Trust NASDAQ Global Auto Index Fund tracks a market-cap-weighted index of global auto manufacturing firms.

CARZ Factset Analytics Insight

CARZ is not a broad, global automobile industry fund, but rather a global automakers fund. In another word, it has big stakes in the brand-name companies that manufacture the cars you see on the road—Toyota, Daimler, etc.—but no positions in the upstream part suppliers and accessory manufacturers. Nearly 80% of the fund is allocated to American, German, and Japanese automakers. CARZ charges 70 bps for this exposure, but the strategy still appeals to some: CARZ hosts more than $30M in assets under management. Whether because of liquidity screens or classification issues, there's no Tata motors in this portfolio; the fund is light on emerging markets in general. CARZ is a good choice for investors with conviction in this specific slice of the market, but its high holding costs and wide spreads are not to be ignored.
