EWG Factset Analytics Insight

EWG aims to provide concentrated exposure to large- and midcap segments of the German equity market, meaning it covers the top 85% of the German companies by market cap. It primarily consists of stocks traded on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange. The fund uses a traditional, market-cap focused strategy for the selection and weighting of its securities. It tracks an index that omits small-cap companies which are a minor part of the overall market. Index constituents are reviewed quarterly.
