Investing in Egypt ETFs / Egypt ETF List
A list of Egypt ETFs consists of the Market Vectors Egypt Index ETF (NYSEARCA: EGPT) from Van Eck which tracks the Market Vectors Egypt Index. This index tracks publicly listed stocks that are domiciled and primarily listed in Egypt or generate the majority of their revenues in that country which is one of Africa’s largest economies and the most populous Arab county in the world. Its worth noting that the two Egyptian stock exchanges were very active in the 1940s (when combined, they actually ranked fifth in the world), but the Egypt stock market largely went dormant from the 1960s until the 1990s when the country adopted socialist central planning policies. Investors interested in investing in Egypt ETFs should also check out our Egypt ADR list page plus our Africa ETF list, Africa ETF (Region Wide) list, Middle East ETF list and Middle East ETF (Region Wide) list pages as some region wide ETFs may also have exposure to Egyptian stocks.
