This ETF offers exposure to Indian equity markets, making PIN one of many ETF choices for investors looking to access an emerging market that maintains both tremendous growth potential and considerable volatility. Considerable India exposure is a part of many broad-based emerging markets ETFs, but those looking to overweight this economy may find PIN to be a useful tool. Like many international ETFs, PIN leaves a bit to be desired in terms of diversification; with just about 50 components and near double digit exposure to multiple stocks, the underlying portfolio is somewhat concentrated. It's also worth noting that the fund is dominated by large cap companies; pairing this fund with a small cap ETF such as SCIF or SCIN may result in more complete exposure to India's equity markets. For those seeking large caps, there are some other options available, including earnings-weighted EPI and INP, an ETN that could alleviate concerns about the liquidity of Indian stock markets. PIN's expenses may seem high compared to other equity ETFs, but the fees are quite reasonable considering the type of exposure offered (INP comes in a few basis points lower for those with major concerns about expenses).
