A Diversified Foreign Large-Blend ETF With Low Fees
iShares Core MSCI International Developed Markets ETF is on our radar with $900 million in assets after just more than one year.
Daniel Sotiroff: A new fund that we have on our radar is iShares Core MSCI International Developed Markets ETF (IDEV). It was launched in March 2017, making it just over one year old, and has already garnered about $900 million in assets. It tracks the MSCI World Ex-USA Investible Market Index.
As its name suggests, it covers the entire market-cap spectrum of stocks listed in foreign developed markets, making it one of the most diversified portfolios in the foreign large-blend category. Stocks listed in foreign developed markets account for roughly 85% of the foreign investable market cap, so this fund could easily be used as a core portfolio holding.
