iShares Edge MSCI Multifactor Intl Small-Cap ETF
*Unless otherwise stated, data provided by FactSet.

ISCF Fund Description

ISCF tracks an index of international small-cap firms. Stocks are selected and weighted to increase exposure to four investment factors (quality, value, momentum, and small size) while maintaining marketlike characteristics.

ISCF Factset Analytics Insight

ISCF is part of a suite of multi-factor funds, each of which optimizes a plain-vanilla MSCI index for enhanced exposure to four popular factors: quality, value, momentum, and small size. The optimization algorithm includes tight limits on active risk and tilts toward any one country, sector, or firm. The result is a fund with the potential to outperform over the long run, while staying neutral enough to be appropriate as a core equity holding. However, ISCF is a bit pricey compared with its international small-cap peers. While volume is generally workable, wide spreads at times can mean steep round-trip costs. The multi-factor strategy appears sound at first blush, but the methodology is highly complex, so be sure to check our portfolio statistics to see how ISCF's holdings and real-world performance stack up against our neutral segment benchmark.
