KSA Fund Description

KSA tracks a market cap-weighted index of Saudi Arabian firms covering 99% of the market cap spectrum.

KSA Factset Analytics Insight

KSA was the first ETF to provide direct exposure to Saudi Arabian equity. Foreign ownership of Saudi stock was prohibited before June 2015, and the fund's continued ability to invest is subject to limitation and review by the country's regulators. Don't plan on getting a piece of the famous Saudi oil fields—those remain in the hands of the state-owned Saudi Aramco, and KSA's energy stake is relatively modest. Instead, the fund is dominated by industrial mega-cap SABIC, as well as a number of banks and other financial firms, some of which retain significant state ownership. Given the bureaucratic hoops the issuer must jump through—not to mention scant competition—it's no surprise that KSA doesn't come cheap. However, the fund does a decent job overall at providing comprehensive coverage of a market that's not easy to access.
