    Default Exchange Traded Funds

    Hi all,

    I am wanting some exposure to international markets, in particular developing economies (India, Vietnam, Poland etc). I have had a look on the asx and can't seem to find any etf's. Is it a matter of buying funds on other stock exchanges?

    Ishares might be someone to look at, they offer various ETF's but not sure if individual exposure to the countries you want.

    IFN is the India fund code which trades in the US

    Yes, as far as I am aware there are only three ETFs listed on the ASX, namely:
    • SFY - StreetTRACKS S&P/ASX 50 Fund
    • SLF - StreetTRACKS S&P/ASX 200 Listed Property Fund
    • STW - StreetTRACKS S&P/ASX 200 Fund

    All of which are Australian-focused.

    For more choice of ETFs, you need to look in the US, where this market is most developed. You could start by looking at the iShares website.

    Alternatively, you could use unlisted managed funds with a focus on the areas you are interested in, or listed closed-end managed funds (such as IFN mentioned by bvbfan).

    Cheers, Staybaker.
