SCZ FactSet Analytics Insight
SCZ is a star within its segment, delivering some of the most comprehensive exposure to the international developed small-cap market with a large and diverse collection of holdings. This breadth serves SCZ well as it accurately reflects the international developed small-cap market. Across nearly every exposure metric SCZ looks incredibly neutral: it avoids big sector, size, and country bets. The one exception is Canada: SCZ excludes Canadian companies from its portfolio—a common practice in this space given the high correlation of Canadian firms to American firms. However, SCZ's advantages extend beyond exposure: it's an incredibly liquid fund for this segment, with tight spreads, heavy trading, and easy creation. It also charges one of the lowest fees in its segment, with solid tracking and tax efficiency as well. For checking all the boxes at a reasonable cost, SCZ is our Analyst Pick.
