Analyst Report

This ETF offers exposure to the domestic equity market, but utilizes a unique methodology to access this asset class. Each sector of the economy receives an equal weight in EQL, a strategy that results in a drastically different composition relative to market cap-weighted products such as SPY. EQL is designed to offer more balanced exposure and has the added benefit of avoiding the potentially adverse impact of rallies or crashes in specific sectors of the economy. EQL is an alternative to SPY, and is backed by a sound and compelling investment methodology; the downside is the price tag, as the expense ratio is significantly higher than other U.S. equity ETFs, close to four times greater in some cases.
