Re: IKO - iShares MSCI South Korea Capped Index Fund

Just started having a glance at this ETF, I am a little confused as to why this is the only ishares fund with the word capped in its name. Does anyone know what this refers to?

Thank you sinner, I guess this is because Samsung is currently 22.8% of this ETF.
