FCA Fund Description

FCA tracks the Defined China Index. The alpha-seeking index employs a quantitative methodology to select stocks based on both value and growth factors.

FCA Factset Analytics Insight

FCA offers broad China exposure with a twist—it implements its AlphaDex methodology to select a concentrated portfolio of 50 stocks from the S&P China BMI universe based on a number of growth and value factors, subject to weighting constraints set at 15% above the sector percentages of the base index. The fund's tiered equal-weighting structure contributes to its significant mid and small-cap exposure. The fund is also rebalanced and reconstituted semi-annually. Overall, FCA is a breath of fresh air for those wanting to shy away from the 'big 4' Chinese state-owned banks that carry such a heavy hand in most China ETFs.
