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 is the only ETF that provides focused exposure to Sweden's large- and midcaps, covering a small market dominated by a handful of industrial, financial, and consumer companies. Like the market itself, it is highly concentrated, with over 60% of its portfolio allocated to its top 10 holdings and roughly 50% of its portfolio allocated to just 2 sectors, industrials and financials. Still, despite its large-cap bias, EWD is broadly representative of the underlying market. The fund trades well for investors large and small, with small spreads on a retail basis and excellent underlying liquidity for block trades. The fund charges an average fee for the single-country space, but tracking is not always consistent and holding costs might be hard to predict.

EWD MSCI ESG Analytics Insight
