This ETF offers investors an alternative means of accessing the developed markets outside of the U.S., as DWM may have appeal as a substitute to EAFE funds such as EFA or VEA. Unlike those cap-weighted products, DWM is linked to a dividend-weighted index that determines components and individual security allocations based on cash dividends paid. That methodology may be appealing to investors looking to maximize their current returns, but may also be attractive simply because it avoids the potential pitfalls of cap-weighting methodologies. DWM casts a wide net, spreading its portfolio across hundreds of individual securities in various countries and sectors of the economy. The potential drawback of DWM is the fees; it is considerably more expensive than VEA. Cost conscious investors will likely gravitate towards the Vanguard alternative, but those who find the dividend weighting methodology compelling may be happy to fork over a few extra basis points.
The adjacent table gives investors an individual Realtime Rating for DWM on several different metrics, including liquidity, expenses, performance, volatility, dividend, concentration of holdings in addition to an overall rating.
