This ETF offers exposure to the health care sector internationally, focusing on companies in developed and emerging markets outside of the U.S. Given the international and sector-specific nature of this fund, IRY probably doesn't belong in a long-term, buy-and-hold portfolio; it will be more useful for investors looking to implement a tilt towards the generally stable health care sector without including U.S. stocks. IRY can also be useful as part of a pairs trade, such as long IRY / short XLV. Perhaps not surprisingly, IRY is somewhat concentrated; the basket of securities is relatively shallow, and a few big names account for a significant portion of total assets. And while the underlying index theoretically includes emerging market exposure, in practice IRY is exclusively a developed market fund. For a limited segment of investors, this fund may be a useful tool; those looking for U.S. exposure may prefer XLV or RYH, while those seeking more global representation may prefer IXJ.
