Prepare For Chindia's Consumer Spending Surge With ETFs

October 04, 2012

China and India are expected to witness rapid growth in consumer spending thanks to an increasing number of middle class citizens, and investors may want to use emerging market ETFs with heavy allocations to consumer-focused companies in these two countries to profit from expected spending, according to an article on Benzinga.

These three funds were listed for their direct exposure to either the Chinese or Indian consumer sector:

  • EGShares Emerging Markets Consumers ETF (NYSEArca: ECON)
  • EGShares India Consumer ETF (NYSEArca: INCO)
  • First Trust ISE Chindia Index Fund (NYSEArca: FNI)
