FCAFirst Trust China AlphaDEX Fund
FCA Fund Description
The First Trust China AlphaDex Fund tracks the Defined China Index. The alpha-seeking index employs a quantitative methodology to select stocks based on both value and growth factors.
FCA Factset Analytics Insight
FCA offers broad China exposure with a twist—it implements its AlphaDex methodology to select a concentrated portfolio of 50 stocks from the S&P China BMI universe based on a number of growth and value factors. FCA's alpha-seeking methodology doesn't come cheap—its expense ratio is one of the highest in the segment. Still, FCA is a breath of fresh air for those wanting to shy away from China Mobile and the 'big 4' Chinese state-owned banks that carry such a heavy hand in most China ETFs—none of those companies currently sits in the fund's basket. The fund's tiered equal-weighting structure contributes to its significant mid- and small-cap exposure. Investors should also pay close attention to FCA's trading costs—wide spreads hurt tradability.
