IPAC includes a similar developed Asia Pacific weight, tracking the MSCI Pacific Investable Market Index, with a 68.0% position in Japan, 17.8% in Australia, 9.0% in Hong Kong and 4.0% in Singapore. However, since MSCI considers South Korea an emerging market, IPAC does not include Korea exposure.

ASEA leans toward southeast Asian economies, including Singapore 37.5%, Malaysia 25.5%, Indonesia 16.8%, Thailand 15.7% and Philippines 4.5%.
