IEUS Fund Description

IEUS tracks a market-cap-weighted index of small-cap companies in developed countries of Europe.

IEUS Factset Analytics Insight

IEUS offers excellent exposure to Europe’s small caps, but investor interest remains thin. The ETF offers the only “vanilla” exposure in the segment—rival SMEZ is cap weighted but holds only Eurozone names, while DFE has a dividend focus. Still, investors remain lukewarm to IEUS: Trading volume is thin and spreads have been extremely wide and volatile at times, outweighing the fund’s low fee and decent tracking record. Note that the fund’s long term performance record includes roughly 7 years tracking a materially different index which included Asia-Pacific stocks (under a different ticker, IFSM). The index change occurred on 9/2/14. Still, investors willing to trade with care can find excellent, marketlike coverage of European small caps (including those of the UK) for a reasonable fee in IEUS.
