FKO Fund Description

FKO tracks an index of South Korean firms screened using a proprietary methodology and weighted equally in tiers.

FKO Factset Analytics Insight

FKO has a tiny asset base and rarely trades. If you insist on buying it, be aware that its risk of closure is high, meaning it may not be around for the long haul. Still, FKO offers a different spin in a 5-fund segment—its proprietary weighting methodology currently produces a midcap-heavy portfolio, which lowers the fund's weighted average market-cap. FKO has less than half our benchmark's weighting to technology, reallocating much of that weight to consumer non-cyclicals and telecoms. Look no further than Samsung Electronics' smaller weighting in the top 10 holdings for all the evidence you need that this is not the market portfolio.

FKO MSCI ESG Analytics Insight

First Trust South Korea AlphaDEX Fund has an MSCI ESG Fund Rating of B based on a score of 2.28 out of 10. The MSCI ESG Fund Rating measures the resiliency of portfolios to long-term risks and opportunities arising from environmental, social, and governance factors. ESG Fund Ratings range from best (AAA) to worst (CCC). Highly rated funds consist of companies that tend to show strong and/or improving management of financially relevant environmental, social and governance issues. These companies may be more resilient to disruptions arising from ESG events.

The fund’s Peer Rank reflects the ranking of a fund’s MSCI ESG Fund Quality Score against the scores of other funds within the same peer group, as defined by the Thomson Reuters Lipper Global Classification. First Trust South Korea AlphaDEX Fund ranks in the 4th percentile within its peer group and in the 0th percentile within the global universe of all funds covered by MSCI ESG Fund Ratings.
