HAWX Fund Description

HAWX tracks an index of global large- and midcap stocks outside the US, hedged against movements in the underlying currencies for US investors.

HAWX Factset Analytics Insight

HAWX offers no-frills exposure to global stocks outside the US, with a currency hedge for US investors. The fund holds shares of ACWX to provide the equity exposure, then adds OTC forward contracts for the forex hedge. We see little additional risk from the forwards themselves, which should provide effective, but not perfect, hedging. The fund competes directly with Deutsche Bank’s DBAW, which offers near-identical exposure. HAWX charges a competitive fee, though unhedged competitors charge significantly less. The fund’s tracking error may look messy because its NAV is based on the market price of ACWX, which trades when the index’s stock markets are closed—this shouldn’t reflect poorly on the fund’s management. In all, HAWX offers a straightforward basket of currency-hedged stocks.
