If you're interested in broad exposure to the Large Cap Blend segment of the US equity market, look no further than the ALPS Equal Sector Weight ETF (EQL), a passively managed exchange traded fund launched on 07/07/2009.

The fund is sponsored by Alps. It has amassed assets over $290.05 million, making it one of the average sized ETFs attempting to match the Large Cap Blend segment of the US equity market.
