HAUD Factset Analytics Insight

The fund is closing. The last day of trading will be August 17, 2020 Launched in July 2015, HAUD offers no-frills exposure to Australian stocks with a currency hedge for US investors. The fund holds large and liquid EWA to provide the equity exposure, which in turn holds the underlying stocks directly. This structure is akin to a Russian doll, rather than a derivative. Still, derivatives are used for the FX hedge: 1-month forward contracts. We see little additional risk from the forwards themselves, which should provide effective, but not perfect, hedging. HAUD charges a reasonable fee, but tracking stats won’t be helpful as a gauge of holding costs. Its tracking error will look bad because its NAV is based on the market price of EWA, which can trade when the index’s stock market is closed. In all, HAUD offers a straightforward basket of currency-hedged stocks. Trade the new fund with care.
