We have downgraded the Morningstar Analyst Rating™ for the Legal & General Pacific Index fund to Bronze. The fund previously held a Silver rating. The fund offers investors broad exposure to Asia-Pacific equity by tracking the FTSE World Asia Pacific ex Japan Index. When compared with the average fund in the Morningstar Category, it notably overweights Australia and excludes India. The fund’s country allocation, which has led to its underperformance in 2014, somewhat weakens our previously strong conviction that the fund can beat the average fund in the Morningstar Asia-Pacific ex-Japan Equity Category on a risk-adjusted basis over a full market cycle. That said, the tracker continues to exhibit all of the strengths we would expect from a competent index fund, including rock-bottom pricing and tight tracking ability.
