Analyst Report

This ETF is one of the broadest equity products on the market, offering exposure to stocks in developed market countries (including the U.S.) all over the globe. URTH is in direct competition with VT, an offering from Vanguard which boasts an even deeper portfolio of holdings. Although VT is just barely more expensive, it includes exposure to emerging markets, an important asset class that is entirely omitted by URTH. Overall, VT features a much more diverse portfolio consisting of nearly 3,000 individual holdings, while URTH holds about half of that number. Nonetheless, URTH can potentially be a one stop shop for equity exposure to those looking to build a long-term portfolio, though the lack of emerging markets exposure may require some fine tuning based on return objectives and risk tolerances. It should also be noted that much like VT, URTH is also dominated by large cap stocks, and maintains minimal exposure to small cap companies; as such, those building a well-balanced long-term portfolio may wish to seek out complementary holdings for rounding out exposure. Other ETF options for similar exposure include ACWI, while investors seeking ex-U.S. exposure may prefer ACWX or VEU.
