BFOR Fund Description

BFOR tracks an equally weighted index comprising 400 US companies selected on fundamental parameters.

BFOR Factset Analytics Insight

BFOR provides a unique take on the US total-market segment for a hefty fee. The fund selects its holdings from the US equity universe based on fundamental factors, and equally weights them. As a result, it tilts heavily toward smaller companies and makes some significant sector bets. This has increased the fund's market risk overall. BFOR's retail liquidity is only middling, with wide spreads and adequate volume, although larger traders should find block execution straightforward. BFOR charges a sizeable fee, but it delivers its index efficiently and holding costs should be roughly in line with the sticker price.
