EPU Fund Description

The iShares MSCI All Peru Capped ETF tracks a market-cap-weighted index of Peruvian firms.

EPU Factset Analytics Insight

EPU offers good exposure to Peru given the constraints of its market and its diversification needs. Because the Peruvian market is extremely top heavy (two firms represent roughly 90% of the market cap), the market would be inaccessible in a diversified fund. EPU holds a portfolio that meets the IRS's diversification requirements at the expense of marketlike exposure. Although EPU has the big exposure to basic materials firms that you would expect from the resource-rich nation, the fund's financials exposure gets a haircut from the reduced stake in Creditcorp at "only" about a fifth of the portfolio. The fund scores poorly for Fit for these reasons, but its exposure is as good as you will find in an ETF wrapper. EPU can be traded fairly, although spreads can be significant at times. Underlying liquidity is very poor, however: one creation unit represents a massive share of the underlying market, so block trades will move those prices. While EPU's expense ratio is in line with other single-country EM funds, tracking has been looser than we'd like and holding costs are likely to be higher than the headline fee.
