FSZ Fund Description

FSZ tracks a tiered equal-weighted index of 40 Swiss companies selected from the S&P Switzerland BMI. It aims to outperform the broader market using a quant-based methodology.

FSZ Factset Analytics Insight

FSZ tries to outperform its market benchmark by using a quantitative model to select, rank and weight (in 5 tiers) 40 stocks based on a variety of growth and value factors. It's no surprise that FSZ's performance deviates from that of our benchmark as FSZ's portfolio tilts significantly away from the market: FSZ heavily overweights mid- and small-caps, and leans toward basic materials and financials. FSZ needs to deliver, as the fund's annual 0.80% fee isn't cheap compared to competitors. Access isn't cheap either: Liquidity is thin and spreads are wide.

FSZ MSCI ESG Analytics Insight

These companies may be more resilient to disruptions arising from ESG events.
