When looking at the major stock indexes around the world, the U.S. still stands head and shoulders above most, which is an astounding feat given the economic ramifications that the pandemic has caused. Still, it doesn’t hurt to add international exposure as global economies look to reopen and return to normal–whatever that may look like in the coming months.

One way to do so as opposed to investing in single country funds is to look at exchange-traded funds (ETFs) that offer international exposure. One option is to screen out companies that offer quality options by offering dividends to investors.

Here’s a Markets Insider snapshot of how the stock market indexes are doing around the world:
