1. VanEck Vectors India Small-Cap Index ETF
Investors who want to invest in an economically unchallenged emerging market powerhouse can look to India. The choice for Kaplan: SCIF. The fund has been developed according to the MVIS India Small-Cap Index. Kaplan says that the fund is substantially lower in 2018 than its high value, which makes it undervalued and a cheap purchase for a long-term investor.
Indian Premier Narendra Modi’s policies and tensions with Pakistan’s neighbor, which contribute to the Fund’s undervaluation, disenchant investors he says. He said that investors willing to take certain risks in an Emerging Market ETF could, in the long run, be rewarded. The fund is 0.83% more expensive than the average ETF, but it also offers access to a harder-to-reach asset class.
