Overview of iShares MSCI Israel ETF offerings
Israeli Equity Exposure: EIS provides investors with exposure to a basket of Israeli stocks. This allows for diversification within the Israeli market and the potential for capital appreciation if the underlying Israeli companies perform well.
Focus on Mega-Cap Stocks: The fund has a tilt towards mega-cap Israeli companies, meaning it primarily invests in the largest and most established businesses in the Israeli stock market. These larger companies may offer a degree of stability compared to smaller, more volatile companies.
Passive Management: EIS is passively managed, meaning it tracks the MSCI Israel Index. The fund aims to replicate the performance of this index by holding the same securities in similar proportions.
Cost-Effective Access: ETFs like EIS typically offer lower expense ratios compared to some actively managed funds. This translates to a larger portion of the fund's returns going to investors.
Geographic Diversification: While focused on Israel, EIS offers some geographic diversification within a single investment compared to investing in individual Israeli stocks.
Potential for Currency Fluctuations: The performance of EIS will be tied to the value of the Israeli Shekel (ILS) relative to the investment currency (usually USD).
