BICK Fund Description

BICK tracks an equal-weighted index of firms from Brazil, China, India and South Korea.

BICK Factset Analytics Insight

BICK is not a comprehensive emerging markets fund, as it only focuses on Brazil, India, China and South Korea. Instead, BICK is an alternative option to the popular "BRIC" theme, replacing Russia with South Korea. Notably, the fund skips emerging markets powerhouses like Russia, Taiwan and South Africa. BICK’s narrow version of emerging markets exposure leads to sector biases that come with the difference in country exposure, although it is less dramatic than one might expect. In addition, the underlying index screens securities based on market cap and liquidity. It then applies an equal-weighting scheme—each country is allocated 25% of the weight, and stocks within each country are equally-weighted, as well. The index is reconstituted and rebalanced on a quarterly basis.
