List of Country-Specific ETFs and CEFs

Some investors find it easy to invest in a country-focused fund rather than research and pick individual companies. This strategy works well since most of these funds hold the largest companies in a specific country and investing in them is relatively safer than say putting money in lesser known companies.

Many country-specific funds are available in the form of Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) and Closed-Ended Funds (CEFs). Each have their own advantages and disadvantages. CEFs can be highly volatile during adverse market conditions. For example, to invest in Chile one can choose either the Chile ETF from iShares (ECH) or the Closed-Ended Fund, The Chile Fund (CH). ECH has $240M in assets while CH has $173M but the dividend yield for CH is 8.16%.

The table below lists the tickers of  Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) and Closed-Ended Funds (CEFs) by country:


Please note that this list may not be complete as new ETFs are launched by providers. The data shown in the table is known to be accurate but do your own research before making any investment decisions.
