This ETF offers exposure to New Zealand's equity market, giving investors an opportunity to access a developed Asia Pacific economy that often receives little weight in portfolios. For investors seeking exposure to New Zealand is likely to be one of the only options available; even most Asia Pacific ETFs include only a minor allocation to this economy, and there are no other pure play choices available. Given the targeted focus, ENZL is probably most useful as a tactical tool for short-term tilts towards this developed economy. For those who believe that New Zealand maintains superior long term economic potential, however, ENZL may be worthy of inclusion in a longer-term, buy-and-hold portfolio; this ETF can be useful as a satellite holding for overweighting a market that is one of the smaller components of most portfolios (if it's included at all). Like most international equity ETFs, ENZL is relatively shallow in terms of total holdings, and subject to significant biases towards certain sectors. In this case, it is not banks and energy, but materials and telecom that receive the lion's share of the asset allocation. ENZL leaves something to be desired in terms of breadth and depth of exposure, but this fund is one of the only options for accessing New Zealand and delivers this Pacific market at a relatively affordable price.
