EWQ Fund Description

The iShares MSCI France Index Fund tracks a market-cap-weighted index of French companies. It covers the top 85% of French companies by market cap.

EWQ Factset Analytics Insight

EWQ captures French equities extremely well, holding a diverse portfolio of French large- and mid-caps with an extremely market-like array of sector weights. It's slightly more concentrated and tilts large compared to our benchmark, since EWQ does not hold any small-caps in its basket, but overall EWQ does a good job of looking like the broader French market. It's also highly Tradable, with massive daily volume and airtight spreads, as well as excellent underlying liquidity. Since EWQ is made of French stocks, traders will get the best execution in the morning when the markets overlap. While EWQ's expense ratio is a bit high for a fairly vanilla fund in a developed market, it often recoups its fees thanks to smart portfolio management and a successful securities lending program.
