SCIX Fund Description

SCIX tracks an index that provides a multifactor approach to investing in the Asia-Pacific region, excluding Japan.

SCIX Factset Analytics Insight

Recently launched SCIX offers alternative exposure to Asia-Pacific stocks, selecting from a universe of the 400 largest and most liquid stocks from Hong Kong, New Zealand, Singapore, South Korea and Australia. Four factors are then applied to these companies, which are measured by price-to-book ratio, free-float market capitalization, historical volatility over a 2-year period, and one-year-minus-one-month total returns, respectively. These securities are weighted according to a proprietary, multifactor approach. Specifically, SCIX uses 5 different weighting schemes and takes the average weight from these in an effort to diversify model risk. The fund charges a reasonable fee for its exposure and underlying mechanics. Trade carefully, as SCIX is still tiny and illquid. Full scoring will be available in November 2015.
