EWL Factset Analytics Insight

The iShares MSCI Switzerland Capped ETF tracks a market-cap-weighted index of Swiss stocks. It captures 85% of the publicly available market, excluding small-caps. The cap-weighting means that the fund is heavily concentrated in its top 10 holdings, but it nevertheless mirrors our benchmark closely, including a heavy concentration in healthcare. EWL trades easily and is a liquidity leader in its segment, with excellent underlying liquidity. Its expense ratio is average for international equity funds, but securities lending and/or skillful optimization help to claw back much of those costs, making EWL cheap to hold.
