SCJ Factset Analytics Insight

SCJ offers cheap, broad exposure to the Japanese Small-Cap segment. The fund tracks same the index we've chosen for our market benchmark. SCJ almost replicates its index, as opposed to heavily optimizing the portfolio, resulting in very muted sector biases and a weighted average market cap that is near-exactly aligned with our benchmark. The fund's liquidity is decent, and traders will generally find tight spreads and reasonable volume. Those looking to trade in creation units should have little trouble, though multiple creations/redemptions could move prices. Charging a reasonable fee for its exposure and clawing most of it back with securities lending, SCJ's holding costs end up being quite low, and tracking is excellent.
