About EWT

The investment seeks to track the investment results of the MSCI Taiwan 25/50 Index. The fund will at all times invest at least 80% of its assets in the securities of its underlying index and in depositary receipts representing securities in its underlying index. The index is designed to measure the performance of the large- and mid-cap segments of the Taiwanese market. A capping methodology is applied that limits the weight of any single issuer to a maximum of 25% of the underlying index. The fund is non-diversified.
