    Fund Details

The investment objective of the MSCI AC Asia Index Sector Fund (MXAS) is to replicate as closely as possible the performance, before expenses, of each of the 11 sectors of the MSCI All Country (AC) Asia (MXAS) index. The MXAS index includes large and mid-cap securities across both developed and emerging markets in Asia.  MSCI Inc. uses investability filters and free-float market capitalization to determine the weights of each security.  All securities in the index are classified as per the Global Industry Classification Standard (GICS®).

Each of the 11 sector sub-funds are constructed by taking the more than 1,300 securities in the MXAS index, segregating them into their respective GICS® sectors and then using those securities as components for that specific sector fund. 

The MSCI AC Asia Index Sector Fund is an institutional and accredited investor fund.
