“Ireland’s performance over the past four years stands in stark contrast to its peripheral peers in the euro zone. Portuguese stocks are down about 12 percent, equities in Italy are up 32 percent, and Spain’s are up 15 percent. Unsurprisingly, debt-ridden Greece has been the worst performer, down 33 percent since the debt crisis,” according to Bloomberg.

EIRL, home to $168.7 million in assets under management, devotes about 51% of its combined weight to materials and consumer staples stocks with the financial services and industrial sectors combining for a third of the ETF’s weight.
