FGM Fund Description

The First Trust Germany AlphaDex Fund tracks a tiered equal-weighted index of 40 companies selected from the S&P Germany BMI based on the S&P's AlphaDex selection methodology.

FGM Factset Analytics Insight

FGM tries to outperform the German market by using a quantitative model to select 40 stocks out of a broad German equity index. It then ranks these stocks based on their attractiveness and weights them equally within quintiles. It reconstitutes and rebalances its portfolio semiannually to maintain exposure to expected outperformers while still controlling transaction costs. This quant-strategy doesn't come cheap—it's the most expensive fund in the segment.
