Value Investors Turn To European ETFs

September 21, 2012


European markets are gaining ground following the European Central Bank’s recent actions, and while the eurozone is still in the midst of finding an answer to its debt problems, some investors may want to consider gaining exposure to reviving countries while prices are still low and broad-based ETFs are surging, according to an article on Seeking Alpha.

If you are behind in taking part in the eurozone’s rally, consider broad exposure with funds like the iShares Europe 350 Index ETF (NYSEArca: IEV) and the Global X FTSE Nordic 30 ETF (NYSEArca: GXF), the article said.

For those willing to take an even greater risk by seeking out single-country exposure, note that the iShares MSCI Ireland Capped Investable Market ETF (NYSEArca: EIRL) has gained nearly 21 percent since the start of 2012. Beware however, as the ETF carries high risks: Two stocks account for more than a third of EIRL, according to Seeking Alpha.
