IHE Fund Description

IHE tracks a broad-based, cap-weighted index of US pharmaceutical companies.

IHE Factset Analytics Insight

IHE provides comprehensive but skewed coverage of pharmaceuticals, holding about 40 of the largest US pharmaceutical names, and capping large holdings in an industry where three players (J&J, Pfizer and Merck) take up more than 40% of the market cap. This heavily tilts IHE toward mid- and small-caps compared to our benchmark. While pharmaceuticals account for a hefty majority of IHE, the fund also holds positions in biotech. Its departures from neutral exposure seem to have resulted in a fund with greater volatility than the market it's trying to capture. IHE sees inconsistent trading volume, and retail investors should be wary of considerable spreads, though underlying liquidity is better for large investors. IHE charges a typical fee for its segment, and tracking is roughly in-line with that fee, if not a little better thanks to its securities lending program.

IHE MSCI ESG Analytics Insight

iShares U.S. Pharmaceuticals ETF has an MSCI ESG Fund Rating of BB based on a score of 2.86 out of 10.
