AAXJ Fund Description

The iShares MSCI All Country Asia ex-Japan ETF tracks a market-cap weighted index of Asian stocks, excluding Japan. The fund holds securities from both developed and emerging markets in Asia.

AAXJ Factset Analytics Insight

For those looking for Asian exposure without Japan's dominating influence, AAXJ is the fund of choice. It selects its holdings from a nearly identical universe to our segment benchmark. It does diverge a bit by limiting its universe to the top 85% of companies by market cap, so it does tilt to large- and mid-caps. It also excludes Australia by rule while carrying more exposure to Hong Kong. AAXJ boasts excellent Tradability, trading in high volume daily with one of the tightest spreads among international equity ETFs. Block liquidity is also strong, so larger investors should have no trouble. For all this, AAXJ does charge a sizeable fee, especially given the fund's plain-vanilla strategy, but that doesn't change the fact that AAXJ is one of the best options in the Asia Ex-Japan space and earns our Analyst Pick.
