FXD Fund Description

FXD tracks an index of large and midcap US Consumer Discretionary stocks. The underlying index uses multifactor selection and tiered equal weighting.

FXD Factset Analytics Insight

FXD aims to outperform rather than match the Consumer Discretionary sector. It uses value and growth screens to select outperforming stocks, then applies tiered equal weighting. Rebalanced every quarter, this fund's process produces significant differences from marketlike sector exposure. The fund has much greater midcap exposure compared to our benchmark, and comes with significant industry tilts. This makes sense given that it seeks higher returns. FXD is undeniably strong in in terms of Tradability, with high volume and low spreads. However, FXD's expense ratio is high for its segment, with high fees. FXD might appeal to those who favor quasi-active selection, but it's less useful for pure play sector exposure.
