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 SCJ/NYSEARCA and WisdomTree DFJ/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 FLJP/NYSEARCA lacks a full-year track record (introduced in Nov’ 17)

We do not receive any commission or other form of compensation from the providers included in our 'Funds' presentation
