Analyst Report

This ETF offers exposure to the equity markets of the EMU member countries: meaning only those who have adopted the Euro. This bloc of nations represents some of the strong economies east of the Atlantic, such as Germany, France, and Italy. This ETF offers exposure to some of Europe?s largest companies as well, including the French energy firm Total SA, and the German conglomerate Siemens AG. From a sector standpoint, this fund does a good job of spreading its assets across the board, leaving investors with a healthy diversity when adding this fund to their portfolio. When it comes to countries, however, EZU does carry a bias towards France, Germany, and Spain, who account for the majority of the fund?s asset allocation. This ETF may represent a strong play for investors who are looking to gain exposure to the euro through a equity structure, or for those who simply believe in these powerhouse economies.
