EWY Fund Description

The iShares MSCI South Korea fund tracks a market-cap-weighted index of large- and midcap Korean firms.

EWY FactSet Analytics Insight

EWY leads its segment in assets and liquidity and does an excellent job of providing unbiased exposure to the Korean equity market. The fund tracks a less-inclusive variant of our chosen benchmark that ignores most small- and micro-caps, but still reflects the market well. As in our benchmark and many peer funds, tech giant Samsung dominates the portfolio, to the extent that it frequently bumps up against regulator-imposed concentration limits. EWY is a long-established fund that's not as cheaply priced as some of its newer peers, but solid tracking and strong liquidity mean that all-in costs should be competitive. Overall, the fund is a very practical way of gaining exposure to the segment for investors of all stripes, earning it a spot on our Analyst Pick list.
