BMO S&P/TSX Equal Weight Banks Index ETF - ZEB

ETF Overview

The fund has been designed to replicate, to the extent possible, the performance of the S&P/TSX Equal Weight Diversified Banks Index, net of expenses.

The fund invests in and holds the constituent securities of the index in the same proportion as they are reflected in the index.

Additional Index Information

The S&P/TSX Equal Weight Diversified Banks Index includes commercial banks whose businesses are derived primarily from commercial lending operations and have significant business activity in retail banking and small and medium enterprise corporate lending.

The index is a subset of the S&P/TSX Composite Index, but each constituent security is allocated a fixed weight rather than a market capitalization weight.

ETF Analysis

We would recommend this ETF if it was not for the MER ().

Charging an MER of 0.62% whilst holding just 6 stocks seems very excessive to us.
