EPP Factset Analytics Insight

If you're looking for broad, cheap, and liquid exposure to the Developed Asia-Pacific market, without Japan, look no further than EPP—our Analyst Pick for the segment. While it diverges from our benchmark by excluding most small-caps and therefore tilting large, EPP's overall sector and geographic exposures look market-like. South Korea is excluded by rule as the index (like our benchmark) classifies it as emerging, not developed. Overall, EPP does a great job of capturing the developed economies of Asia outside Japan. In terms of Tradability it reigns supreme despite a large creation unit size, thanks to good underlying liquidity and heavy daily trading activity. Its expense ratio falls in line with the segment and tracks well, while receiving a bit of extra revenue from securities lending in exchange for slight counterparty risk. With great liquidity, tracking, and segment exposure, EPP is an easy Analyst Pick.
