VGK Fund Description

The Vanguard FTSE Europe ETF tracks an all-cap, market-cap weighted index of developed European securities.

VGK Factset Analytics Insight

VGK holds a broad, comprehensive portfolio of companies from developed European countries. The fund changed to a different version of its FTSE index in October 2015, a move designed to include smaller firms in marketlike proportion. VGK charges an extremely low fee for a European ETF. It's also one of the most liquid funds in the segment, with massive daily volume and tight spreads. Overall, it's hard to beat VGK for exposure to developed Europe. VGK's representative portfolio, low expense ratio, and superior liquidity all contribute to its designation as the Analyst Pick for the segment.
