HEFA Fund Description

HEFA tracks a market-cap-weighted, USD-hedged index of large- and midcap stocks from developed countries outside the US and Canada.

HEFA Factset Analytics Insight

HEFA offers a plain vanilla exposure to international stocks with a 100% currency hedge to the US dollar. The fund neutralizes the currency exposure of its underlying securities by shorting currency forward contracts. This allows shareholders a “purer” equity exposure to Europe, the Far East and Australia. The fund also holds iShares’ EFA for its equity exposure—in essence, HEFA is a currency-hedged version of EFA. Aside from utilizing 1-month forward contracts, the fund may also use non-deliverable forward (NDF) contracts to execute its hedging transactions.
