FLN Fund Description

FLN tracks an index of Latin American firms screened based on a proprietary methodology and weighted in tiers.

FLN Factset Analytics Insight

FLN aims to identify a portfolio of Latin American stocks that will outperform the market. It scores eligible securities by several factors, including momentum, growth, and valuation metrics, and selects the top 50. Holdings are sorted into tiers by score, with higher tiers getting more weight, and equal weighting within each tier. This weighting method causes FLN to go lighter on large-caps, with a strong bias to midcaps. That alone would make it a difficult Fit to our benchmark, but it also makes several significant sector bets. Trading volume is lukewarm and spreads often run wide. Block trading could also be a challenge due to the weak liquidity of the underlying basket. While FLN charges a steep expense ratio, investors may see holding costs that are significantly higher or lower due to inconsistent index tracking.
