This Pure Play Represents 85% of the Taiwanese Market

Our coverage on single-country exchange-traded funds (ETF) brings us to iShares MSCI Taiwan Capped ETF (EWT), a fund that is incorporated in the United States and provides exposure to large and mid-sized companies in Taiwan.

EWT targets the equity market in Taiwan by holding only stocks that are traded on the Taiwan Stock Exchange. Since its launch in 2000, EWT has amassed $2.92 billion in total assets and has retained its robust liquidity with a high daily trading volume, far outranking its competition.

In fact, many investors consider EWT the most stable Taiwan play going into 2017. The potential benefit of investing in EWT instead of a more broad-based emerging market ETF is that investors could gain a great deal more from a growing Taiwanese economy by buying shares of EWT.
