Analyst Report

This ETF offers exposure to the global equity market, casting a wide net that includes dozens of economies from all corners of the world. Given this focus, ACIM can be used in a number of different ways. It certainly has potential to be a core holding in a long-term, buy-and-hold portfolio, since it spreads exposure across a number of different economies and all sectors of the global stock market. It can also be used as a blunt "risk on" tactical tool for investors expecting stock markets to rally but not interested in picking a specific sector or market. It's important to take a look under the hood of ACIM and understand the regional breakdown. Though technically a global product, this ETF is likely to have a huge allocation to U.S. stocks--perhaps as much as 50% of the total portfolio. Moreover, though ACIM includes both developed and emerging markets stocks it tends to be tilted heavily towards developed markets in North America, Asia, and Western Europe. The weighting afforded to emerging markets is on the light side--to say the least. If you're using ACIM as a core holding for broad equity exposure, you may want to look into adding some additional emerging markets positions to the mix to more accurately reflect the composition of the global economy.
