Analyst Report

This ETF offers an opportunity to access small cap emerging markets equities, making it a nice complement to funds such as EEM or VWO that are heavy on large cap stocks. Because mega caps are often multi-national companies that generate revenues in multiple regions, small caps can be better “pure plays” on the local economy and may be more reflective of domestic consumption patterns. DGS is a nice option for small cap emerging market exposure, an asset class that is often overlooked but that can be a valuable addition to most portfolios.
