EFGiShares MSCI EAFE Growth ETF
EFG Fund Description
EFG tracks a market-cap-weighted index of developed-market growth stocks from Europe, Australia and the Far East.
EFG Factset Analytics Insight
EFG offers representative exposure to the developed markets ex-US segment. The fund comes with two quirks—it also excludes Canada and ignores small-caps. EFG picks growth stocks in the MSCI EAFE Index using long- and short-term forward earnings per share growth rates, current internal growth rates, long-term historical EPS growth trends and long-term historical sales per share growth trend. The fund’s exclusion of small-caps contributes to a large-cap tilt, and it may have some small sector biases. Nevertheless, EFG offers solid exposure to Europe, Australia and the Far East. The index is reviewed on a semi-annual basis.
