EFZ Factset Analytics Insight
EFZ provides daily inverse exposure to the MSCI EAFE Index by holding swaps on iShares' EFA. A broad bet against developed-market large- and midcaps, EFZ especially captures inverse exposure to Japan and the UK. Note that EFZ is a tactical tool. Due to daily compounding, it's unlikely to achieve its intended exposure for longer than a one-day period. As such, trading costs are the major concern, and EFZ's are manageable thanks to adequate liquidity and generally tight spreads. EFZ charges a standard fee for a leveraged ETF, and most investors won't stick around long enough to realize much of those holding costs anyway.
