Vanguard VISM ETF (ASX:VISM)
The Vanguard VISM ETF provides investors with exposure to a diversified portfolio of small-cap companies from developed countries around the world, excluding Australia.
What does the VISM invest in?
The VISM ETF invests in more than 4,000 companies from developed markets around the world. The median market cap of these companies sits around the $3.5 billion mark, so while they are considered small-cap, many companies in the portfolio are still of a considerable size. This ETF is diversified across industries and across countries, although just over half of the companies are US-based.
What do investors use VISM for?
The VISM ETF could be used by investors with a relatively high risk tolerance and a desire to diversify away from Australian equities. Small-cap companies would be considered by many investors to be ‘high risk, high reward’.
