Asia is the largest continent on the planet in both terms of size and population. It covers almost 9% of the world and about 30% of the land on our planet. So it only makes sense that investors want to target economies in this large region.

However, trying to corner the market on stocks in Asia would be a huge undertaking for any portfolio, but there is an easier way. Asia ETFs.

An Asia ETF can give investors instant exposure to Asian markets and assets without having to accumulate the stocks in an index or purchase multiple company shares.

Asia ETFs are prepackaged portfolios targeting specific goals for investing in Asian markets. And while they not only help you accomplish your investing goals, ETFs can help with fees and commissions as well.

So if you think that an Asian ETF might be a fit for your portfolio, check out the list of Asia ETFs below. Research each individual fund and take into account all factors such as risk, price, and market conditions…

As with any investment, a company stock, an ETF, Index or otherwise, please make sure you thoroughly research this exchange-traded fund or any financial asset before making any trades (long or short). Conduct your due diligence, watch how these funds react to different market conditions, take a look under the hood and see what is in the funds. And if you have any questions or concerns, make sure you consult a stockbroker, a financial advisor, or another financial industry professional.

While ETFs have many advantages, they have many disadvantages as well (as does any investment). So it is very important to understand the investment vehicle before you trade it.

But once you have a full understanding on these Israel ETFs, you can consider adding either or both to your portfolio. And good luck with all of your trades!
