Since 2009, the U.S. stock market has gained over 250%, while the international market is up less than half that amount.

With economic momentum picking up in international markets, and earnings following suit, we may begin to see this gap start to close.

While this is good news, volatility will continue to be inherent in international markets, especially with geopolitical uncertainty such as North Korea and the upcoming Italian elections. That’s why it’s critical to utilize a solution that can help provide a smoother ride.

4FTSE Developed ex-North America Net Index. Total Returns based on NAV and Market Price do not reflect brokerage commissions or sales charges in connection with the purchase or sale of Fund shares, which if included would lower the performance. The NAV used in the Total Return calculation assumes all management fees and operating expenses incurred by the Fund. A fund’s NAV is the sum of all its assets less any liabilities, divided by the number of shares outstanding. The market price is the most recent price at which the fund was traded. ETFs are bought and sold at market price, and market price/returns are based upon the midpoint of the bid/ask spread at 4:00 p.m. (when NAV is normally determined for most ETFs), and do not represent the returns an investor would receive if shares were traded at other times.

  • Investing involves risk, including possible loss of principal. Shares are bought and sold market price, and are not individually redeemed from a fund. Brokerage commissions will reduce returns.
  • International investing involves a greater degree of risk and increased volatility. Changes in currency exchange rates and differences in accounting and taxation policies outside the U.S. can raise or lower returns. Also, some overseas markets may not be as politically and economically stable as the United States and other nations.
  • Narrowly focused investments typically exhibit higher volatility
  • Emerging markets involve heightened risks related to the same factors as well as increased volatility and decreased trading volume.
  • A fund uses derivatives, which may be riskier than other types of investments and may increase the volatility of a fund.
  • A fund may not track the return of its underlying index for a number of reasons, such operating expenses incurred by a fund that are not applicable to an index, and the time difference between calculating the value of an index and the net asset value of a fund.
  • There is no guarantee the funds will meet their investment objective.
  • Diversification may not protect against market loss
