Vanguard Global ex-U.S. Real Estate ETF offers broad, low-cost exposure to the foreign real estate market. It excludes U.S. securities from its portfolio, which restricts its opportunity set and makes it a misfit among its global real estate Morningstar Category peers. However, its ultralow expense ratio provides a consistent edge and merits a Morningstar Analyst Rating of Bronze.
