EWC provides excellent coverage in a low cost wrapper—a clear Analyst Pick. It's reasonably priced versus competitors, and strong tracking keeps real-world holding costs low—often lower than the headline fee. EWC's underlying index is very similar to our segment benchmark, so the fund doesn't stray much from the broad market. The most notable difference is a lack of small-caps in EWC, but that hasn't had much noticeable effect on the fund's performance.
Follows MSCI Canada Custom Capped Index, which focuses on the large and mid-cap segments of the Canadian market (variation of MSCI 25 and MSCI 50). Weighting in the fund is slightly top-heavy, but follows our investment strategy. Purchase fills the target allocation of 20% of funds in the Canadian market.
