*Unless otherwise stated, data provided by FactSet.

FLAX Fund Description

FLAX tracks a market-cap-weighted index of large- and midcap stocks from developed and emerging Asian countries, excluding Japan.

FLAX Factset Analytics Insight

FLAX offers broad, inexpensive exposure to Asian stocks. Excluding Japan boosts the fund’s exposure to China, Korea, and Taiwan—though unlike our segment benchmark, FLAX excludes Australia. Also unlike our benchmark, the fund omits small-cap stocks, a common concession in the space. FLAX is a viable contender and charges an attractive fee, but be sure to use caution when trading.
