The exchange traded fund (ETF) world offers something for every investor. For those who have trouble deciding what they want in their ETFs, there are blended ETFs with a dash of "this" and a pinch of "that."
For example, the First Trust Advisors LSE ChIndia Fund (FNI) is an ETF that offers exposure to China and India through one fund. The fund holds the 25 most liquid stocks in each country and has a low expense ratio at 0.6%.
Selena Maranjian for The Motley Fool suggests other diversified ETFs like the SPDR Trust (SPY) that has a broad mix of U.S. companies and the iShares MSCI EAFE Index ETF (EFA) that has a wide array of international exposure. Another blended ETF option is the Claymore BNY/BRIC Fund (EEB). It represents 40% of the global population and gives simplified exposure to Brazil, Russia, India and China.
