EWUiShares MSCI United Kingdom ETF
EWU Fund Description
The iShares MSCI United Kingdom Index Fund tracks a market-cap-weighted index of British companies. It covers the top 85% of British companies by market cap.
EWU Factset Analytics Insight
EWU holds a fairly concentrated basket of British large- and midcaps that, nevertheless, captures the UK space well. Its top holdings include big names like Royal Dutch Shell, HSBC and BP. EWU separates itself from competitors by providing neutral, unhedged market-cap-weighted exposure to the U.K. EWU features abundant liquidity and trades well but its expense ratio seems slightly high for a fund holding only the biggest companies. Despite our reservations about the fund's fee, its solid coverage and deep liquidity make it the clear Analyst Pick in the segment.
