EWZ Fund Description

The iShares MSCI Brazil fund tracks a market-cap-weighted index of Brazilian firms covering the entire market-cap spectrum.

EWZ Factset Analytics Insight

EWZ is the segment powerhouse, dwarfing the asset tally and volume of its peers. EWZ also delivers outstanding, marketlike exposure; it tracks a version of our segment benchmark that skimps a bit on small-caps but performs almost identically. All-in costs are low: The fund has massive trading volume and tight spreads, while good tracking means that holding costs are typically in line with the headline fee. The fund carries a huge asset base and long track record too. In all, EWZ is the best choice for investors looking for relatively cheap, neutral exposure to Brazil, and anyone treating Brazil as a trading strategy. EWZ is easily our Analyst Pick for the segment.
