List of ETFs Focusing on Europe List on U.S. Exchanges
There are more ETFs on U.S. exchanges focused on Europe than any other region. Investors have a wide range of options including numerous broad ETFs that focus on both the Eurozone and Europe as a whole. The fundamental difference between Eurozone and Europe ETFs is the Eurozone ETFs leave out the United Kingdom as it is not part of this group. When the United Kingdom is part of an ETF, the ETF tends to be weighted towards the UK. When the United Kingdom is not part of an ETF, France and Germany tend to have the greatest weight. ETF providers supply a wealth of information of the specific holdings of the ETFs they offer.
In addition to broad ETFS, there are ETFs hedged to the US dollar, dividend ETFs, large and small cap ETFs, leveraged ETFs, short ETFs and ETFs focusing on specific sectors. The limited number of sector ETFs there are is quite surprising as on European exchanges there is a robust selection of sector ETFs to choose from and sector ETFs tend to be very popular amongst investors. With more and more ETFs added each year we likely will see our choices in this area grow in the near future.
