Analyst Report

This ETF delivers targeted exposure to the U.S. financial sector, making it one option for investors seeking to tile their portfolios towards U.S. banks. While VFH may seem similar to XLF and other financial ETFs, the makeup of this product is actually very different. VFH offers considerably greater depth of exposure than other options, including about 500 individual securities in the underlying portfolio (many in the Financials Equities ETFdb Category have fewer than 100). While the top ten still account for a meaningful portion of total assets, VFH features much lower concentration than XLF (as well as a larger allocation to small and mid cap stocks). For investors looking to dig deep with their exposure to financial ETFs, VFH is likely the best option available. While this fund isn't the cheapest in its category--XLF and FFL are more cost efficient--the expense ratio is competitive, especially considering the depth of holdings delivered.
