Analyst Report

This ETF offers exposure to the stocks markets of Latin America, a group that includes several of the world's major commodity-producing economies such as Brazil, Mexico, Chile, and Peru. As such, FLN can potentially be used as a component of a long-term portfolio, though some investors may prefer to achieve exposure to these economies through broad-based emerging markets ETFs, such as EEM or FEM, that also include Asian and Middle Eastern markets as well. It should be noted that FLN excludes several South American economies, including Colombia and Argentina; those markets are accessible through GXG and ARGT, respectively. FLN is different from other Latin American equity ETFs such as GML or ILF because of the methodology used by the underlying index. FLN seeks to replicate an AlphaDEX benchmark that uses a quant-based strategy to identify stocks with the greatest potential for capital appreciation, with the goal of outperforming more broadly-based cap-weighted benchmarks. In return for this shot at alpha, investors will pay a bit more; FLN's expense ratio is higher than alternatives such as ILF and GML. Moreover, the AlphaDEX approach will generally result in a more balanced portfolio that avoids big weightings in mega cap companies. So for those who believe that the AlphaDEX methodology will be able to generate alpha over the long run, FLN might be a useful tool for establishing exposure to Latin American stocks. For those who prefer to simply own the market and keep fees down, other members of the Latin America Equities ETFdb Category may make for better choices.
