FBZ Fund Description

FBZ tracks an index weighted in tiers and selected using growth and value factors.

FBZ Factset Analytics Insight

FBZ does not attempt to provide neutral exposure to Brazil, instead it tries to select firms best positioned to outperform the market. This gives it a significant small- and midcap tilt and a choice for those investors willing to assume the increased risks of its portfolio. Sector bets also drive a slightly increased beta. To construct its portfolio, the fund will select 50 stocks with the highest selection score based on growth and value factors. These are then split into quintiles, with higher scoring quintiles receiving greater weight in the index. Weighting constraints are also set at 15% above the sector/country percentages of the base index. The fund is rebalanced and reconstituted semi-annually.
