Overlooked Foreign Stock ETFs
These three options are pretty good.
There are more decisions to make when selecting foreign stock funds than U.S. stock funds, including which markets to focus on and whether to hedge currency risk. The wide range of options can seem overwhelming. But sticking with a broad fund from the foreign large blend Morningstar Category is a great way to start. Many of these funds provide access to a wide pool of foreign stocks, diversify the risks specific to single markets and currencies, and should provide reasonable long-term performance. Here are three funds from that category that haven’t received much attention but are worthy of consideration.
IQ 50 Percent Hedged FTSE International ETF (HFXI)
HFXI is a low-cost, well-diversified foreign stock fund that could be used as a core holding.
