FXG Fund Description

FXG Factset Analytics Insight

FXG doesn't aim for marketlike representation of Consumer Staples stocks, but instead aims to pick winners within the sector. Its quant model weeds out underperforming stocks using value and growth screens, then applies a tiered equal weighting scheme. The resulting basket of can show some cap-tilts and sector biases, and its performance does not always meet the fund's objectives. FXG trades briskly with tight spreads. It does, however, carry one of the higher expense ratios in its segment.
