This unique ETF offers exposure to developed and emerging markets outside of the U.S., including dividend paying companies that are selected based on a methodology that includes growth of earnings and revenue metrics. As such, this fund is one of many options for investors looking to establish exposure to international equities, a core holding in any long-term portfolio. DNL maintains a more narrow focus than many of the products in the Global Equities ETFdb Category, resulting in a bit of a concentration in just a few securities. The other potential drawback is the expense structure; DNL is quite a bit more expensive than the other ETF options offering generally similar exposure. Still, for investors who understand the methodology used by the underlying index and are attracted to the investment strategy, DNL may be a compelling choice.
The adjacent table gives investors an individual Realtime Rating for DNL on several different metrics, including liquidity, expenses, performance, volatility, dividend, concentration of holdings in addition to an overall rating. The "A+ Metric Rated ETF" field, available to ETFdb Pro members, shows the ETF in the Global Equities with the highest Metric Realtime Rating for each individual field.
