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

The MSCI ESG Fund Quality Score measures the ability of ETF underlying holdings to manage key medium to long-term risks and opportunities arising from environmental, social, and governance factors, as determined by MSCI ESG Research LLC.
