EFAV Factset Analytics Insight
EFAV delivers a popular low-volatility take on 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.
