Analyst Report

This ETF offers a way to tap into the Asia Pacific region while avoiding potential return drag Japan. This strategy might have appeal to investors concerned that the Japanese economy will continue to struggle thanks to intensifying competition from emerging markets and staggering public debt burdens. Investors looking to fine tune their international equity exposure may find EPP to be a useful tool in building a long-term portfolio, though those looking to cast a wider net and include all major Asian economies might want to consider VPL instead. This ETF can also have appeal over a much shorter-time horizon; EPP can be a useful tactical tool that gives investors a way to bet on short-term strength from Asian economies. Several elements of the EPP portfolio are worth noting. Investors should be aware that EPP is dominated by developed market stocks--this ETF won't give you much in the way of exposure to China or Malaysia, and is instead dominated by Australian equities. And like many international equity ETFs, there are certain biases in the portfolio; EPP is skewed towards large cap and mega cap stocks, and certain sectors receive hefty allocations (in particular, there's a big weight to banks). Those looking to focus more on emerging Asian economies should take a look at GMF, which features a very unique risk/return profile. EPP is a nice tool for investors looking to fine tune their international equity exposure, avoiding Japan in favor of more promising developed Asia Pacific economies. But the nuances of the exposure should be recognized and understood before establishing a position.
