IWC - Micro-Cap Ishares ETF

Micro-Cap Ishares ETF logoThe iShares Micro-Cap ETF (IWC) is an exchange-traded fund that seeks to track the investment results of the Russell Microcap Index. The Russell Microcap Index is a subset of the Russell 3000 Index, representing the smallest 1,000 securities in the index by market capitalization.

The IWC ETF was launched on August 1, 2005, and is managed by BlackRock Fund Advisors. Its expense ratio is 0.60%, which is higher than the average expense ratio for comparable small-cap ETFs.

Investing in micro-cap stocks can be riskier than investing in larger companies due to their volatility, lack of liquidity, and limited information availability. However, micro-cap stocks can also offer higher potential returns, as they are often undervalued and have more room to grow.

The IWC ETF provides investors with exposure to a diversified portfolio of micro-cap stocks across various sectors, including technology, healthcare, industrials, and consumer discretionary. As of March 22, 2023, the top holdings of the IWC ETF include Amedisys Inc., Malibu Boats Inc., and Lantheus Holdings Inc.

Investors interested in the IWC ETF should carefully consider their investment objectives, risk tolerance, and investment time horizon before investing. It is important to note that past performance is not a guarantee of future results, and the value of an investment in the IWC ETF may fluctuate over time.
