FCAN Fund Description

FCAN tracks an index of Canadian equities that uses a tiered equal-weighting scheme and a multifactor proprietary selection process.

FCAN Factset Analytics Insight

FCAN charges a steep fee for its attempt to outperform the Canadian market. FCAN's portfolio skews far from the broad market as a result of its alpha-seeking strategy. Sector biases are severe, and have tended to change dramatically over time. The fund has also heavily favored midcaps. While investors have started to warm up to the fund, trading remains tricky, particularly for large investors.
