FBZ Fund Description

FBZ tracks an index weighted in tiers and selected based on a proprietary methodology.

FBZ Factset Analytics Insight

FBZ does not attempt to provide neutral exposure to Brazil, instead trying to select firms best positioned to outperform the market. This gives it a significant small- and midcap tilt, makes it a poor Fit to our benchmark, and a choice only for those investors willing to assume the increased risks of its portfolio. FBZ more than doubles the utilities exposure of the market (13% vs. 6%) while giving consumer non-cyclicals (the second largest weighting in our benchmark) a 7% haircut. These sector bets drive a slightly increased beta. Even if this skewed portfolio is your cup of tea (although we see no significant alpha), before diving in, be aware that the fund is highly priced (80 bps expense ratio) and its meager asset tally makes it a nightmare to trade.
