FPA Fund Description

The First Trust Asia Pacific Ex-Japan AlphaDex ETF tracks an index that selects and weights 100 stocks from the S&P Asia Pacific Ex-Japan BMI Index based on their growth and value factors.

FPA Factset Analytics Insight

FPA's exposure and performance differ radically from our benchmark while high costs and weak liquidity greatly reduce its appeal. It aims to outperform the Developed Asia-Pacific Ex-Japan market using a quant-based methodology that produces severe sector and size biases. FPA includes a heavy allocation to South Korea, which our benchmark considers an emerging country and therefore excludes. Reasonable people can disagree on South Korea's emerging vs. developed status, but few could defend the fund's poor liquidity and hefty expense ratio, which add up to very high all-in costs.
