Factor-based strategies give investors the opportunity to gain more targeted exposure to desired factors in their portfolios and to fine-tune them over time. Not only have the excess returns of international factors held pace with those in the U.S., but many of the market dynamics and investor behaviors that help explain why factors have enhanced portfolios over time also hold true in international markets.
Fidelity has integrated its extensive international expertise and its skill in factor investing to develop two new international factor ETFs based on proprietary research. Learn more about the case for mixing the diversification benefits of international exposure with the portfolio-enhancing benefits of international factor investing with this client-approved white paper, and get the conversation going.
ETFs are subject to market fluctuation, the risks of their underlying investments, management fees, and other expenses. Unlike mutual funds, ETF shares are bought and sold at market price, which may be higher or lower than their NAV, and are not individually redeemed from the fund.
