The iShares MSCI Japan ETF is one of the most popular ETF options for exposure to Japanese stocks, and is by far the oldest focusing on this market. As the first Japan-focused ETF to launch in 1996, EWJ quickly became the bellwether for U.S.-based investors wanting Japanese equity market exposure. The Fund tracks the investment results of the MSCI Japan Index, which includes large- and mid-capitalization companies in the Tokyo Stock Exchange. EWJ can be utilized to express a view on the Japanese market as a very well-diversified international equity ETF, holding hundreds of individual stocks consisting of large- and mega-cap stocks.
