EFA Fund Description

The iShares MSCI EAFE ETF tracks a market-cap-weighted index of developed-market securities based in Europe, Australia and the Far East. It excludes the US and Canada, and small-caps.

EFA Factset Analytics Insight

Venerable EFA provides highly accessible exposure to probably the best-known international equity index: MSCI’s EAFE. The fund delivers excellent exposure to developed equities, albeit with some definitional differences from peers. It excludes Canada and South Korea while Vanguard’s VEA includes South Korea and Schwab’s SCHF includes both countries. EFA holds only large- and midcap stocks; sister fund IEFA offers similar geographic exposure while including small-caps in marketlike proportion.

Launched in 2001, the fund is in the elite among all ETFs in size and liquidity—investors of all sizes enjoy phenomenal tradability. EFA charges a surprisingly high headline fee for cap-weighted coverage—some competitors charge a fraction of this. Still, tracking data suggests that the fund's actual holding cost is typically far less—EFA tends to claw back much of its fee through skillful portfolio management and securities lending revenue sharing. In all, EFA delivers excellent coverage of international equities with unmatched liquidity.
