Analyst Report

This ETF offers exposure to Taiwanese equities, and is the most liquid and most popular option for achieving exposure to the quasi-developed economy of Taiwan. As such, this ETF can be used in a number of different ways within a portfolio; EWT can be used as a short-term trading vehicle for betting on strong performance in Taiwan's equity markets, or as a smaller complementary allocation in a long-term portfolio. Some investors, however, may prefer to achieve Taiwan exposure through more broad-based emerging markets ETFs such as EEM and VWO. Like many international equity ETFs, EWT is dominated by large cap stocks, which introduces certain biases into the portfolio. Within EWT's portfolio, the tech sector receives a huge allocation that may be a pro or a con depending on the investor's outlook for that segment of the market. Investors looking to access this market through small cap stocks may prefer TWON, which focuses on a different subset of the country's equity market. Combining EWT and TWON in complementary roles will deliver broad-based, well-rounded exposure to investors.
