CARZFirst Trust NASDAQ Global Auto Index Fund
CARZ Fund Description
CARZ tracks a market-cap-weighted index of global auto manufacturing firms.
CARZ Factset Analytics Insight
CARZ does not capture the broad, global automobile industry. Instead, it is a global automakers fund—CARZ has big stakes in the brand-name companies that manufacture cars often seen on the road, but there are no positions in the upstream part suppliers and accessory manufacturers. A huge portion of the fund’s portfolio is allocated to Japanese, German and American automakers—the fund is light on emerging markets, in general. The fund’s index selects and weights stocks by market cap, with individual weights capped at 8%. The index is reconstituted annually and rebalanced quarterly.
