KWT Fund Description

KWT tracks a market-cap-weighted index of all-cap stocks in Kuwait.

KWT Factset Analytics Insight

KWT tracks an index that aims to provide broad exposure to companies headquartered or listed in Kuwait and carry out the majority of their operations in the area. The underlying index applies size and liquidity caps to the MSCI All Kuwait 30 Index. The index is market-cap weighted with large- and midcap companies being capped at 25% and all issuers with a weight above 5% do not cumulatively exceed 50% weight in the index. Small-cap companies and less liquid securities are represented at their weight as in the Parent Index, therefore not subject to capping. Investors should take note of sector exposure as this will change over time. The fund can concentrate its investments in a particular industry or group, which may or may not be energy.
