Blackrock Mexico ETF | EWW


The iShares by BlackRock Mexico ETF (EWW) provides broad vanilla exposure to Mexican stock market with a minor tilt to small-cap and is managed by BlackRock that has a total AUM of $6.28T.

EWW is an exchange-traded fund incorporated in the USA in March 2011. EWW provides vanilla exposure to the Mexican stock market. Since the Mexican market is very regulatory heavy, EWW has to reconfigure market cap weightings slightly compared to the benchmark to stay Regulated Investment Company (RIC) compliant. This reweighting tilts the fund towards smaller companies and leads to minor sector tilts.

Recommended for:

How did we identify this ETF:
A complete pool of 2100+ ETFs is screened on various qualitative and quantitative parameters to evaluate efficiency, tradability and fit. The metrics used were alpha, beta and R - squared with respect to the segment benchmark and ETF specific metrics such as expense ratio, drawdown, volatility and the overall rating. We evaluate all ETFs and assign a composite score based on our analysis and then select the top ones in a category based on that comprehensive score by the inhouse research / quant analysts team. EWW???s massive asset base underpins its strong liquidity - offering cheap and easy access to investors. Its expense ratio is lower than most single-country emerging market funds, and tracking data often shows true holding costs as less than the fee. The strategy is rebalanced on a quarterly basis with the rebalancing mechanism being determined by an algorithm that takes into account the overall performance of the strategy so far.
