Analyst Report

This ETF offers investors a way to access the economies of developed Europe, including 350 stocks in more than a dozen different economies. For investors who favor a region by region approach to international equities, IEV can be a building block in a long-term buy-and-hold portfolio (though some may prefer broader EAFE funds such as VEA). This iShares fund offers impressive liquidity and solid diversification, as no one name accounts for a significant portion of assets and the portfolio is spread across numerous markets and sectors. The biggest concern with IEV is the expenses; this ETF is considerably more expensive than options such as VGK; that fund includes more holdings at only a fraction of the cost. IEV is an efficient way of establishing a Europe bias, but the fees are too high to be justified, especially considering the cost structure of the closest competition.
