Vanguard is offering a small cap international ETF which tracks the FTSE Global Small Cap ex-U.S. Index (see Index Universe article). The fund considers both developed and emerging countries. While both "small cap" and "emerging" hint of increased risk, the ETF holds 2,100 different companies, providing broad exposure. The ETF also has a relatively small expense ratio at 0.38%, providing an inexpensive and diversified way to take on some international and emerging growth exposure.
