EWC Fund Description

The iShares MSCI Canada ETF tracks a market-cap-weighted index of Canadian stocks. It captures 85% of the publicly available market, excluding all small-caps.

EWC Factset Analytics Insight

EWC provides excellent coverage in a low cost wrapper—a clear Analyst Pick. It's reasonably priced versus competitors, and strong tracking keeps real-world holding costs low—often lower than the headline fee. EWC's underlying index is very similar to our segment benchmark, so the fund doesn't stray much from the broad market. The most notable difference is a lack of small-caps in EWC, but that hasn't had much noticeable effect on the fund's performance. Avoiding smaller firms contributes to strong liquidity for small and large investors alike. With an asset base that dominates the segment, this fund is here to stay.

The fund is expected to change its underlying index to MSCI Canada Custom Capped Index on or about 1 Sept 2017. The change will ensure compliance with RIC diversification requirement.
