ACWX Fund Description

ACWX tracks the performance of a market-cap-weighted index of international stocks. It captures 85% of the publicly available market, thus excluding small-caps.

ACWX Factset Analytics Insight

ACWX offers a basket of stocks that's easy to access and represents its target market well. The fund tracks an index of international large- and midcap stocks that's a subset of our broad-based benchmark. Holding over 1,000 securities, ACWX covers 85% of international market capitalization. By comparison, it would take about 5,000 additional small- and micro-cap stocks to boost coverage to 99%. In the end, the absence of these names doesn't really move the dial as ACWX's performance and exposure align extremely well with our benchmark. ACWX has a higher fee than some cap-weighted peers, but tracking differences suggests it’s cheaper to hold than the fee suggests. Strong liquidity—aided by a streamlined basket—further reduces all-in costs. Solid AUM rounds out the picture of a solid fund offering excellent exposure at a low total cost. Rival CWI tracks the same index, typically with less liquidity and lower but more variable holding costs.
