This ETF offers exposure to developed markets outside of the U.S. and Canada, applying a twist to distinguish itself from other options focusing in on the EFA region. DTH could potentially have appeal to investors looking to build a long-term portfolio that overweights high dividend paying foreign equities, this ETF could also be appealing to investors looking for a shorter-term tilt towards EFA equities with a focus on enhancing current returns. This ETF has a heavy tilt towards Western Europe, though exposure is spread across a number of different countries in that region. Australia also makes up a large chunk of assets although Japanese holdings are curiously missing from the fund. Besides financials, which make up roughly one-fourth of the fund's total assets, DTH does a reasonable job of spreading exposure across a number of sectors--something that can't often be said about ETFs focusing on dividend payers. DTH can be used to beef up dividend payments to a portfolio while still maintaining equity upside, and investors may be surprised at the types of yields this asset class can deliver.
