EWI Fund Description

EWI tracks a market-cap-weighted index of Italian companies. It covers the top 85% of Italian companies by market cap.

EWI Factset Analytics Insight

EWI does a great job of providing focused coverage of Italian equity with a small but comprehensive basket of large- and midcap stocks. Its exclusion of small-caps gives the fund a tilt toward larger firms, but that’s a reasonable concession in this small market. Exposure to the largest names is pared back somewhat for RIC compliance, so EWI is only slightly more concentrated than our cap-weighted benchmark. The fund typically trades well, with strong daily volume and tight spreads. Keep in mind that Italian markets close just a few hours after EWI starts trading, so short-term premiums or discounts to NAV may simply reflect price discovery by the fund. EWI charges a reasonable fee and tracks its index tightly, keeping holding costs down. In all, EWI's large asset base, strong liquidity, and decent coverage make it a solid choice for those wanting vanilla exposure to Italy in an ETF.
