EWY Fund Description

EWY tracks a market-cap-weighted index of large- and midcap Korean firms.

EWY Factset Analytics Insight

EWY provides unbiased exposure to the Korean equity market with significant exposure to Samsung. The fund tracks an index that ignores most small- and micro-cap stocks. To ensure diversification, the index applies certain investment limits with no single issuer exceeding 25% of the Underlying Index weight, and all issuers with a weight above 5% not cumulatively exceeding 50%. These limits are imposed on regulated investment companies (RICs) under the current US Internal Revenue Code. The index is rebalanced quarterly to coincide with the reporting requirements of RIC-compliant funds.
