European ETF Offers Array of Prominent Companies

This week’s ETF Talk will be the first of five highlighting exchange-traded funds (ETFs) that invest in European companies. While these funds have different strategies, the one we will focus on today is the broadest: the Vanguard FTSE Europe ETF (VGK).

This fund invests in large companies in Europe’s most developed and significant economies. This focus means that a majority of Europe’s westernmost countries are well represented by the fund, along with countries located in the Scandinavia region of Europe.

VGK holds a selection of the most well-known, European-based companies you can find, and offers relatively low-risk exposure to big names in the region. For investors seeking a simple way to invest in Europe, this fund may be an attractive option.

VGK has a very low expense ratio, which currently clocks in at just 0.10%. Because many large European companies pay substantial dividends to their shareholders, VGK sports a 3.42% yield and makes dividend payments every quarter. Net assets total $10.9 billion.
