IXP Fund Description

The iShares Global Telecom ETF tracks a market-cap-weighted index of global telecommunications stocks.

IXP Factset Analytics Insight

IXP is the lone ETF choice in the Global Telecom segment. Tracking a float-adjusted, cap-weighted index covering the worldwide telecom market, IXP offers a smaller basket of larger stocks that nevertheless does a fair job capturing the market. There are small geographic biases, and the fund tilts large, but overall IXP looks like the market at large. Liquidity is adequate for most traders, with moderate daily trading activity and modest spreads. Larger investors will find IXP's liquid underlying basket can handle block trading. The fund charges a middling fee, but it tracks its index closely and usually manages to recover a sizeable chunk of its fee via securities lending and portfolio optimization. Even if IXP weren't the only fund in its segment, it would still be a reasonably-priced offering for Global Telecom exposure.
