Geographic folios use ADRs and ETFs for exposure to securities offered in specific non-U.S. countries such as Japan, as well as geographic areas like Latin America.

Different parts of the world experience different economic cycles, which can provide investors with diversification benefits. Adding exposure to international markets can diversify a U.S. equity portfolio with exposure to both developed and emerging markets abroad, with the potential to increase returns.

We also have several folios designed to track the Bank of New York Mellon ADR Indices. These indices track depository receipts of international companies that trade on U.S. stock exchanges as ADRs.
