EWGS Fund Description

EWGS tracks a market-cap-weighted index of the smallest German companies. It covers the bottom 14% of German companies by market cap.

EWGS Factset Analytics Insight

EWGS is the sole option for pure-play exposure to German small-caps. The fund provides representative exposure to the smallest companies in Germany and is the perfect complement to iShares' Germany ETF (EWG), which covers the top 85% of German companies by market cap. The fund captures the market well, with essentially no deviations from our benchmark. EWGS charges a premium versus its total-market peers, but it otherwise reasonably priced. The fund hasn't attracted much interest from traders yet: average spreads are wide and volume is lukewarm, so trade carefully.
