IEFA Fund Description

The iShares Core MSCI EAFE ETF tracks a market-cap-weighted index of developed-market stocks in Europe, Australasia and the Far East, and excludes the US and Canada. It covers about 98% of investable markets.

IEFA Factset Analytics Insight

IEFA offers broad, unbiased coverage for a low fee. Unlike many competing funds, it includes smaller firms in marketlike proportion, making it more representative overall. Despite the challenges presented by small-caps, IEFA is among the most liquid funds in the space. Its ample liquidity, deep basket and very competitive fee make 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. A solid asset base rounds up this strong offering and underscores the fact that IEFA is a great choice for cost-effective, long-term exposure to developed markets outside North America.
