This ETF is linked to an index which tracks the performance of small cap U.S. stocks. The investment thesis behind a small cap investment is the growth factor that comes along with these securities. While mega cap firms have already hit their peak, many of these companies may be well on their way to becoming the next large cap, and this product gives investors access to over 200 of them. The downside to small cap investing is that these companies carry a fair amount of risk; because they are so small, the slightest change in regulations or anything specific to an individual company could send share prices plummeting. JKJ selects securities which have exhibited average growth and value characteristics, in an effort to find the most stable firms to including in the fund's exposure.
