Analyst Report

This ETF offers exposure to a unique segment of the international economy, including economies classified by MSCI as developed except for Japan. As such, this fund can be potentially appealing as a building block of a portfolio for investors who believe Japanese equities will underperform, functioning as a one stop shop for global equity exposure (many global and EAFE ETF options make a meaningful allocation to Japan, one of the world’s largest economies). While Japan is one of the world’s largest economies, it has struggled from a performance perspective for several decades, exhibiting low growth rates and accumulating significant debt burdens. So there are many investors who would rather avoid this potential return drag when constructing their portfolio, especially in certain environments. Investors considering TOK should not the heavy tilt towards U.S. stocks; those seeking greater international allocations may prefer to utilize a piecemeal approach. TOK is very efficient in terms of expenses, and offers impressive depth of holdings; for those looking to avoid Japan but tap into the other developed markets of the world, there is a lot to like about this fund.
