This ETF offers exposure to small cap stocks in Indonesia, one of the world's most populous countries and one of the largest economies in Southeast Asia. IDXJ can be used in a number of different ways; investors seeking to make a tactical allocation to risky assets might find this ETF to be a useful tool given its generally high volatility. Those building longer term portfolios could also find IDXJ useful, since Indonesia is given very small allocations in broad-based emerging markets ETFs such as EEM and VWO. For those who believe that Indonesia should make up a more significant portion of assets, this ETF can be a way to achieve more balanced emerging markets exposure. One unique attribute of IDXJ is the focus on small cap stocks; whereas ETFs such as IDX and EIDO generally target larger companies, IDXJ focuses on companies with market caps of less than $1 billion. Some investors view small cap companies as more of a "pure play" on the local economy, since these companies depend more directly on local consumption as opposed to international sales. IDXJ has a relatively shallow portfolio, and it's worth noting the sector composition of this fund as it may tilt investors heavily towards banks.
