This ETF offers exposure to large cap Japanese stocks, making EWJ an opportunity to bet on one of the largest economies in the world that has been stuck in a low growth environment for several decades. EWJ is by far the most popular ETF option for exposure to Japanese stocks, and is by far the oldest focusing on this market. EWJ is very well diversified for an international equity ETF, holding hundreds of individual stocks and generally avoiding significant concentrations in any big names. Exposure is balanced from a sector perspective as well; besides a decent allocation to industrials-- close to one-quarter of the total-- the portfolio is spread relatively evenly across the Japanese economy. It should be noted that EWJ consists primarily of large and mega cap stocks; investors who would prefer to round out exposure through small caps or prefer small caps as a means of establishing international equity exposure have multiple options (SCJ, JSC, and DFJ) available to them. EWJ is a nice option for Japanese equity exposure; thin spreads, low costs, and balanced exposure make for a quality ETF.
