EWD Fund Description

EWD tracks a market-cap-weighted index of Swedish stocks. It captures the top 85% of companies by market-cap.

EWD Factset Analytics Insight

EWD seeks to provide focused exposure by investing in an index of purely Swedish stocks. It mainly invests in large- and midcaps, but still manages to capture the majority of the market. Also, despite its large-cap bias, EWD is broadly representative of the different sectors. The underlying index selects and weights its holdings by market-cap, with a cap of 25% per company to ensure diversification. However, investors must still be conscious of the fund’s composition before investing, as the limited pool of Swedish companies may yield a top heavy portfolio. The fund uses a sampling strategy, meaning the fund may not hold all the stocks of the underlying index but will hold securities that collectively have the same investment profile. The index is rebalanced quarterly.
