EPHE Fund Description

EPHE tracks a market-cap-weighted index of the broader Filipino equity market.

EPHE Factset Analytics Insight

EPHE is the only ETF focused exclusively on the Philippines, and it's a good one. It holds exactly the same stocks as our benchmark basket. Its sector exposures are spot-on, with financials and utilities taking up more than half of the portfolio, as well as a lot of exposure to consumer goods. While this is a perfect representation of the Philippine market, it's important to note that it is a necessarily concentrated fund and some investors may have concerns about its diversification. EPHE trades decently at the retail level, though it's still worth keeping an eye on the spreads and using limit orders. Larger investors face more obstacles, as the Philippine market is rather illiquid and block trades can move underlying prices. EPHE charges a somewhat high fee for a single-country fund, but it tracks very tightly and overall holding costs are predictable. Overall, EPHE is the place to go for exposure to the Philippine market, with the concentration that implies.
