Developed Markets 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.

  • Equity
  • Asset Allocation
  • Currency
  • Fixed Income

The largest Developed Markets ETF is the Vanguard FTSE Developed Markets ETF VEA with $98.79B in assets. In the last trailing year, the best-performing Developed Markets ETF was FYLD at 74.44%. The most recent ETF launched in the Developed Markets space was the BlackRock World ex U.S. Carbon Transition Readiness ETF LCTD on 04/08/21.
