New Japanese Small-Cap ETF Fund Is Promising

Earlier this year, I wrote about taking advantage of Abenomics and the Bank of Japan’s plan to create inflationary, yen-weakening pressures in the Japanese economy to spur exports and growth. One of this year’s many new exchange-traded funds (ETFs), WisdomTree Japan Hedged SmallCap Equity Fund (DXJS), plays right into that strategy.

For that reason, I want to introduce you to DXJS. The fund seeks to reproduce, before fees and expenses, the performance of an index of small-cap Japanese equities. The index hedges against exposure to fluctuations between the value of the U.S. dollar and the Japanese yen. Specifically, the index is designed to have higher returns when the yen is weakening relative to the U.S. dollar. This fund is non-diversified.

The fund has gained 10.79% since its inception date of June 28, 2013. There have been no dividends issued as yet.
