This ETF offers exposure to equities included in the S&P 500 Industrials Index, which covers the following industries: aerospace and defense, building products, construction and engineering, electrical equipment, conglomerates, machinery; commercial services and supplies, air freight and logistics, airlines, and marine, road and rail transportation infrastructure. RGI is different from other ETF tracking the same index because it employs a unique equal-weighted strategy, meaning that component companies receive approximately equal allocations. That results in exposure that is considerably more balanced than other alternatives such as XLI, and a methodology that some investors believe will add value over the long haul. In return for this unique exposure you can expect higher fees; this ETF is considerably more expensive than both XLI and especially VIS, though it is still extremely cost efficient compared to most mutual funds.
The adjacent table gives investors an individual Realtime Rating for RGI on several different metrics, including liquidity, expenses, performance, volatility, dividend, concentration of holdings in addition to an overall rating. The "A+ Metric Rated ETF" field, available to ETFdb Pro members, shows the ETF in the Industrials Equities with the highest Metric Realtime Rating for each individual field.
