This ETF offers exposure to dividend paying stocks around the globe, including the U.S. and developed and international markets. As such, FGD is one option for investors seeking to construct a simplified long-term portfolio, as it delivers exposure to dozens of countries across all sectors of the global economy while also paying out a solid dividend yield. Thanks to this focus on dividend paying equities, this fund can be useful for enhancing current returns generated from the equity portion of a portfolio, or simply for those who believe that a dividend-focused strategy will generate alpha over the long run. FGD features the sector biases that are traditional in dividend-weighted ETFs, as financials, telecom, utilities, and energy make up big portions of this ETF. Exposure is balanced across several roughly one hundred individual holdings, with a bias towards large and mid cap stocks. FGD is more expensive than some alternatives in the Global Equities ETFdb Category, but that differential may be more than worthwhile for those seeking to implement a dividend-centric strategy.
