EIS Fund Description

EIS tracks a market-cap-weighted index of Israeli firms.

EIS Factset Analytics Insight

EIS was the first Israel-focused ETF on the market, and offers "pure" Israeli exposure, with 100% of its holdings traded in Tel Aviv. The fund tracks a capped version of our MSCI benchmark and caps its exposure to any 1 security at 24%. Since Teva Pharmaceuticals represents over 40% of Israeli market cap and EIS is only able to allocate 24% to a single holding, something has to give. In the case of EIS, that means redistributing the extra weighting to other portfolio companies that would have gone to Teva. The result is a smaller-cap tilt, with an underweighting to health care, pumping up the fund's weighting to financials and basic materials. While EIS may be a challenge to access thanks to mediocre liquidity and wide spreads, it tracks its index well and offers solid exposure for investors interested in the Israeli stock market.
