EWT Factset Analytics Insight
EWT is a popular choice for anyone looking for a market-like exposure to Taiwanese equities. “Market-like” in this space means a heavy dose of technology firms. EWT excludes the bottom 15% of companies by market cap but it's still an excellent proxy for the broad Taiwanese market. EWT launched back in 2000, and has since built a lofty asset base and robust liquidity, towering over any competition. EWT’s substantial liquidity, reasonable fee, effective management and sound exposure make it the clear Analyst Pick for the segment.
EWT changed its name from iShares MSCI Taiwan ETF to iShares MSCI Taiwan Capped ETF on 12/1/2016. It changed its underlying index from MSCI Taiwan Index to MSCI Taiwan 25/50 Index. The new index has explicit diversification requirements which may impact the weights of EWT’s top holdings.
