Overview of Schwab Fundamental International Small Company Index ETF offerings
Tracks an index: FNDC tracks the Russell RAFIā„¢ Developed ex US Small Company Index. This index measures the performance of small-sized companies in developed countries outside the United States based on fundamental factors like profitability, growth, and cash flow, instead of just market capitalization.
Provides exposure to international small-cap stocks: By investing in the underlying index, FNDC offers investors exposure to a diversified basket of small companies in developed markets outside the U.S. This can potentially offer higher growth potential compared to larger, more established companies, but also carries higher risk due to their smaller size and potentially lower liquidity.
Low-cost access: FNDC aims to offer investors a cost-effective way to access this specific segment of the international stock market through its expense ratio, which is the annual fee charged by the ETF.
