This ETF offers exposure to the financial sector of Western Europe, a corner of the developed world that can exhibit significant volatility and has demonstrated big fluctuations in recent years. As such, EUFN is way too targeted for any investors building a long-term portfolio, but can be a potentially useful tool for those looking to apply a tactical tilt or capitalize on perceived short-term mispricings. EUFN can also be useful as part of a long/short pairs trade, such as long XLF / short EUFN. This ETF is, not surprisingly, tilted towards large cap stocks. And while the portfolio includes more than 100 individual securities, a few of the bigger companies make up significant portions of total assets. EUFN is a valuable tool for investors with a very specific objective, but is probably too precise for most.
The adjacent table gives investors an individual Realtime Rating for EUFN on several different metrics, including liquidity, expenses, performance, volatility, dividend, concentration of holdings in addition to an overall rating.
