EWV Factset Analytics Insight
EWV provides 2x inverse levered exposure to the MSCI Japan Index, which aims to capture the broad Japanese equities market. This is the inverse version of sister-fund EZJ, which provides 2x long exposure to the same index. Simple long exposure can be had through iShares’ EWJ. The fund achieves leverage primarily through the use of swap agreements, which carry counterparty risk. Like all levered funds, EWV tends to underperform in volatile markets if held for longer than its reset period, and is only suitable for short-term trading positions. EWV is pricey to trade at the retail level, with significant spreads and daily dollar volume on the small side. Large traders should fare better when working with a market maker, as indicated by EWV’s perfect block liquidity score. We see moderate closure risk due to EWV’s small asset base.
