EFAV FactSet Analytics Insight
EFAV delivers a popular low-volatility take on
“EFAV shows low market risk” international equities. The fund shows low market risk to our benchmark (measured by beta), and its portfolio biases—toward defensive sectors—are consistent with its low-volatility aims. The fund's expense ratio ranks among the lowest in the segment, especially impressive given EFAV's alternative methodology. EFAV undercuts its sister fund from iShares, EFA, which charges a higher fee for plain-vanilla exposure to the same EAFE index. EFAV has firmly established itself in the space with a healthy asset base. The fund trades very well at all sizes. Like other EAFE-based products it excludes Canada, but in all, EFAV provides a viable vehicle for low-volatility developed international exposure.
