Japan ETFs (all - non leveraged)

Japan ETFs (all - non leveraged)
  • Pininvest Analysis

The Japan-themed funds available to the US investor present a consistent performance / volatility profile and factor-weightings (volatility, beta or multi-factors) offer little real differentiation

The outliers – and single factor-driven exceptions – have been the small-cap funds, iShares [asset ticker="SCJ" mnemonic="NYSEARCA"] and WisdomTree [asset ticker="DFJ" mnemonic="NYSEARCA"], demonstrating stock-picking expertise without adding risk exposure

Notably, the equal-weighted performance of the more than 200 US-listed Japanese companies in our dedicated theme hardly differs from the ETFs performance in the present selection

Reminder – the Franklin FTSE Japan ETF [asset ticker="FLJP" mnemonic="NYSEARCA"] lacks a full-year track record (introduced in Nov’ 17)
