RODM has smaller country tilts toward major developed markets like Japan, U.K., France and Switzerland than traditional Europe, Australasia and Far East Index Funds. However, the Lattice ETF includes a 11.2% tilt toward Canada. Individual holdings are also less top heavy in the smart-beta index ETF.
Additionally, investors may find two other multi-factor index ETFs for international exposure, including the Lattice Emerging Market Strategy ETF (NYSEArca: ROAM) and Lattice Global Small Cap Strategy ETF (NYSEArca: ROGS).
Due to its indexing methodology, ROAM has a more spread out exposure to emerging markets. Specifically, the ETF has a much lower tilt toward China, South Korea and Taiwan than the MSCI Emerging Markets Index. China at 7.5% is only the fourth largest country in ROAM’s underlying index. Meanwhile, Taiwan is 9.1% and South Korea is 8.9%.
Lastly, ROGS tries to track global small-cap stocks from both developed and emerging markets, including a 38.8% tilt toward the U.S., Japan 12.5%, South Korea 6.2%, China 6.1% and Canada 4.7%. [Lattice Adds Fourth ETF With Global Small-Cap Fund]
