EWK Fund Description

EWK FactSet Analytics Insight

EWK is the only ETF available coveringThe exposure it offers to Belgium is as good as you can get Belgium, and though it tracks an index similar to our benchmark, it provides an imperfect Fit to the market. This is no fault of EWK or its issuer iShares, as it's impossible for a 1940 Act ETF to fully replicate the market due to RIC diversification rules. Anheuser-Busch InBev represents over 50% of the Belgian market, but RIC rules force funds to cap exposure to a single constituent at 25%. The redistribution of this excess weighting goes to a number of sectors. However, the exposure it offers to Belgium is as good as you can get in the ETF wrapper. The fund is sufficiently liquid for most retail investors and median tracking results are strong. Overall, EWK's analyst pick ribbon is well-deserved.
