New Ratings

Lyxor MSCI AC Asia Pacific ex-Japan ETF C-EURNeutral

Kenneth Lamont

High fees and structural geographic biases mean that we have little confidence in the ability of this fund to outperform its category peers over the long term. With an ongoing charge of 0.60%, the fund is considerably more expensive than comparable passive offerings. Also, despite being relatively broad, the MSCI AC Asia Pacific Ex-Japan index suffers from a significant structural bias toward China relative to peers in the Asia Pacific ex Japan Morningstar Category, making the fund an imperfect tool with which to access that market.
