EZU Fund Description

EZU tracks a market-cap-weighted index of large- and midcap companies from countries that use the euro.

EZU Factset Analytics Insight

EZU holds a well-run and accessible portfolio of large- and midcap Eurozone companies. By design, it excludes firms from countries that don't use the euro—most notably the UK, Switzerland and Sweden—that together account for roughly half of European market cap. This distinction steers the fund away from the broader market but earns a place on our Opportunity List, as the strategy could appeal to currency-focused investors. EZU is heavily concentrated in France and Germany, but sector biases are modest. It charges a relatively steep fee, but investors could see reasonable all-in expenses due to strong liquidity and securities lending revenue.

EZU MSCI ESG Analytics Insight

iShares MSCI Eurozone ETF has an MSCI ESG Fund Rating of AA based on a score of 7.32 out of 10.
