EWZS Fund Description

EWZS tracks a market-cap-weighted index of Brazilian small-cap firms.

EWZS Factset Analytics Insight

EWZS is essentially a bet on five sectors: industrials, consumer cyclicals and non-cyclicals, utilities and financials. Together, they represent over 90% of EWZS' portfolio. That said, these five sectors similarly dominate the investable Brazilian small-cap market. EWZS thus fits our benchmark very well, but is not without its warts. EWZS is expensive to trade for retail and institutional investors alike. Overall, EWZS is a great choice for investors who want neutral exposure to the Brazilian small-cap market, but just trade it carefully.
