Analyst Report

This ETF is one of several offering exposure to the Australian market, making it a potentially useful tool for investors seeking to beef up allocations to one of the strongest and most stable developed markets in the world. Australia is one of the world's most resource-rich economies, which makes it appealing to investors who believe that markets backed by commodities are appealing over the long term. Given the country-specific nature of this ETF, AUSE can be appealing in a couple of different roles. Investors might like this fund as a tactical tool for shifting towards resource-rich economies in certain environments, or AUSE can be used as a component of a longer-term, lower maintenance portfolio. One of the distinguishing characteristics of AUSE is the methodology used by the underlying index. Whereas most equity ETFs are linked to cap-weighted benchmarks, AUSE is dividend weighted. That approach may be appealing to investors looking to avoid market cap weighting, as that methodology has some potentially serious drawbacks. Dividend weighting will obviously enhance the appeal to investors looking to boost current returns; it should be noted that the strategy may result in a tilt towards certain sectors that make the highest distributions. The AUSE portfolio is reasonably well diversified and balanced from a sector perspective--something that isn't necessarily true of all ETFs offering exposure to this economy. In many ways, AUSE offers a better way to access Australia than the ultra-popular EWA, which is quite top heavy in nature. Investors also have KROO as an option; that fund focuses on small cap stocks and tents to be tilted more heavily towards natural resource firms.
