Developed Markets ex-U.S. ETF Overview

The developed markets ex-U.S. total market segment contains what many U.S. investors refer to as international funds—those that exclude the U.S. and cover the market-cap spectrum from large firms to small.

Many funds offer pure cap-weighted vanilla exposure. The two leading funds by AUM, iShares' EFA and Vanguard's VEA, omit Canada from their coverage universe, but otherwise represent the market segment very well.
