EWM Fund Description

EWM tracks a market-cap-weighted index of Malaysian stocks primarily traded on the Kuala Lumpur Stock Exchange.

EWM Factset Analytics Insight

Launched in 1996, EWM is one of the longest-living ETFs on the market. Providing cap-weighted exposure across the Malaysian stock market, EWM hews close to our neutral benchmark with a basket containing only about as third as many companies, and with a slight tilt toward large-caps. A significant amount of its assets are concentrated in financials but this is an accurate reflection of the Malaysian market. EWM is an example of an especially liquid fund where the ETF is altogether more liquid than its underlying securities. However, investors creating or redeeming shares will face more friction as market impact becomes a real risk for EWM's smallest holdings. It charges a reasonable expense ratio for a country-specific ETF and tracking has generally been strong, but those concerned about holding costs should note that the fund has paid out capital gains distributions in the past, which is a taxable event.
