There are over 1,000 exchange trade products available on the market, but many people like to stick to funds that are close to home. If this sounds like you, your international investment strategy might be lacking.

Foreign ETFs are a great way to increase your global exposure as well as to tap emerging markets, diversify a portfolio, and hedge international risk of certain commodities or sectors. Here are a few lists of foreign ETFs that might meet your global investing needs.

Be sure to conduct thorough research on each product before you make any trade, and keep in mind that some might drop off a list and others may be added at any given time.
