SILJ Fund Description

SILJ tracks a modified market-cap-weighted index of small-cap silver mining and exploration companies.

SILJ Factset Analytics Insight

SILJ is the smallest fund in the segment with only a few million of AUM. It is expensive and illiquid, but offers unique exposure that focuses solely on small- and micro-cap silver mining and exploration companies. It includes both pure and nonpure-play silver companies, but modifies its market-cap-based weighting scheme to overweight pure-play silver miners/explorers and underweight nonpure-play companies. The fund looks very little like our neutral benchmark, heavily overweighting Canada and tilting much smaller. While SILJ may one day become the go-to fund for aggressive silver investors, so far it hasn't attracted enough assets to make it a practical choice.
