XAR Fund Description

XAR tracks an equal-weighted index of US aerospace & defense companies, as defined by GICS.

XAR Factset Analytics Insight

XAR takes a different approach to its target than our benchmark and its competitors. It holds a portfolio of aerospace and defense stocks, but while the benchmark concentrates on large-caps—and the very largest names in particular—XAR aims to achieve a 40/40/20 weighting among large-, mid-, and small-caps respectively. It also tends to reach outside our definition of the segment into other sectors. As a result, it does not perfectly track the benchmark and tends to carry more risk, especially in a down market. The fund trades well, and average spreads are reasonable. Underlying liquidity is excellent for block traders. Fees are reasonable for the exposure, and decent tracking means that realized costs are only slightly higher than advertised. XAR delivers diversified exposure and for the right investor can offer an interesting play on the industry.
