FLSAFranklin FTSE Saudi Arabia ETF
FLSA Fund Description
FLSA tracks a market-cap-weighted index of Saudi Arabian equities, excluding small-caps.
FLSA Factset Analytics Insight
FLSA is Franklin Templeton’s offering for representation of the Saudi Arabian market. Qualifying large- and midcap stocks that are incorporated and/or headquartered in Saudi Arabia are weighted by market cap, limiting individual issuers to 20% of fund assets. While FLSA accurately represents the public equity market, that’s a relatively small slice the Saudi economy. The country’s massive energy sector is largely state-owned, so FLSA is dominated by banks and other financial services firms. Foreign ownership of Saudi stock is heavily regulated and was prohibited entirely before 2015, so the fund’s continued ability to invest should not be taken for granted.
