IEFAiShares Core MSCI EAFE ETF
IEFA Fund Description
IEFA tracks a market-cap-weighted index of developed-market stocks in Europe, Australasia and the Far East, and excludes North America. It covers about 98% of investable markets.
IEFA Factset Analytics Insight
IEFA offers broad, unbiased coverage of equities in developed international countries, excluding US and Canada. Unlike many competing funds, it includes smaller firms in marketlike proportion, making it more representative overall. Despite the challenges presented by small-caps, IEFA provides the exposure well. The depth of coverage and flexibility of the product makes it suitable for long- and short-term investors alike. IEFA's only blemish is common to all funds that track a variant of the popular EAFE index: It excludes Canadian firms. However, IEFA is a great choice for long-term exposure to developed markets outside North America.
