This ETF offers a way to access a corner of international equity markets that many portfolios are missing. Most international ETFs are dominated by mega cap stocks, a bias that can tilt exposure towards energy and financials and result in a weak correlation to domestic consumption patterns in the target market. This ETF offers impressive depth of exposure, and avoids concentration in a handful of securities--another potential pitfall of large cap products. DLS is a nice tool for complementing positions in large cap funds, though it's worth noting a significant concentration in Japan.
The adjacent table gives investors an individual Realtime Rating for DLS 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 Foreign Small & Mid Cap Equities with the highest Metric Realtime Rating for each individual field.
