 The Best Of Abroad: EAFE And Beyond

Investors know they need international exposure. For indexers, that has typically meant a fund tied to the MSCI EAFE index. And for ETF investors, that means either the Vanguard Europe Pacific ETF (NYSE Arca: VEA) or the iShares MSCI EAFE Index Fund (NYSE Arca: EFA). These two big funds dominate the space—EFA is in the top 10 of U.S.-listed ETFs by assets, and VEA is a share class of Vanguard’s EAFE index mutual fund. But they’re not the only games in town. There’s at least one traditional cap-weighted alternative out there, not to mention a variety of alternatively weighted and strategy-driven ETFs.

AROUND THE WORLD OF ETFS

SPDRs Spread Their Web

SSgA has filed for the right to launch 16 new international ETFs, in one of the most important ETF filings in recent history. The new funds will give SSgA a complete lineup of global and regional ETFs, and will position the company to capitalize on the growing interest in international investing. The filings will put significant pressure on BGI, which has had, until this year, a near monopoly on international ETFs.

The funds are shown in the shaded box below.
