ITA Fund Description

ITA tracks a market-cap-weighted index of US manufacturers, assemblers and distributors of airplane and defense equipment.

ITA Factset Analytics Insight

ITA delivers a reasonable representation of the aerospace & defense industry. The fund caps its holdings to meet diversification requirements, preventing completely unbiased exposure to an industry dominated by United Technologies, Boeing and Lockheed Martin. Our benchmark allocates over half its weight to these three firms; ITA allocates only about a quarter. It follows that ITA tilts smaller than our benchmark, with about half of its portfolio in mid- or small-caps. Concentration risk remains high despite the caps, reflecting the undiversified nature of the industry. The fund offers ample primary and secondary liquidity for investors of all sizes. Spreads are generally tight and block trades are easy to execute. While ITA's fee isn't cheap, it compares well within its segment and excellent tracking means that its holding costs should be in line with ITA's expense ratio. Overall, it's a solid, reliable ETF for aerospace and defense exposure.
