Top International Smart Beta ETFs

Top 100 International Smart Beta ETFs

I probably like the term “smart beta” even better than most other professional investment advisors, not to mention more than most average investors, but all “smart beta” really means is owning the profits of stocks in proportion to something other than the overall size / market value of those stocks. In other words, a smart beta ETF may be designed to help you own more of the stocks paying the highest dividends, those posting the highest average cash profits, or stocks on an uptrend, rather than simply investing 10x more of a $100 billion company than a $10 billion company because the former is 10x bigger. There is plenty of evidence that this “passive plus” style of investing can provide higher risk-adjusted returns over a pure passive index fund at little extra cost, and I find this especially valuable in international markets, so here I am sharing a list of 100 top international smart beta ETFs listed on US exchanges:
