Interesting New ETFs

The Robo-Stox Global Robotics & Automation Index ETF (NasdaqGS: ROBO) certainly qualifies as original as it is the first dedicated robotics ETF on a U.S. exchange. ROBO has a decent weight to 3D printing stocks compared to other ETFs. [ROBO not Quite a 3D Printing ETF]

The Vident International Equity Fund (NasdaqGS: VIDI) entered a crowded field of international equity ETF, but that has not stopped the ETF from raking in $367 million in AUM.

The ETF “selects 35 developed and emerging market countries with the most liquid stocks. It then weights each company based on the amount of risk each contributes to the overall country basket,” according to IBD.

VIDI tracks the Vident Intenational Equity Index (VIE), which evaluates constituent countries “across growth, sound money, political stability and value factors.  VIE rebalances twice a year and “seeks to reduce country, currency, and company concentration risks that can sometimes be typical amongst traditional capitalization-weighted approaches,” according to the issuer.
