ERSX – The Right Small-Cap ETF for 2021

Small-cap equities ended 2020 on strong notes and while some market observers believe a near-term pullback, the annual outlook for smaller stocks is exceedingly bright. Still, it pays for asset allocators to examine to go beyond traditional strategies. A unique idea backed by excellent performance is the ERShares International Equity ETF (NYSEARCA: ERSX).

ERSX selects the most entrepreneurial, primarily Non-US Small Cap companies, that meet the thresholds embedded in their proprietary Entrepreneur Factor (EF). ERShares’ ETF delivers strong performance across a variety of investment strategies without disrupting investors’ underlying risk profile metrics. Their geographic diversity enables them to harness global advantages through additional returns associated with currency fluctuations, strategic geographic allocations, comparative trade imbalances, and relative supply/demand strengths.

Much of the allure of with ERSX is attributable to its overweight positions in healthcare stocks relative to standard to small-cap benchmarks, particularly high-flying biotech and genomics names.

ERShares Chief Investment Officer Eva Ados highlights recent strength in small caps, which could set the stage for more upside for ERSX this year.

Moreover, she notes that Small Caps have generated twice the performance of the Large Caps over the past 3 months and believes this behavior will continue into 2021,” according to the issuer.

Looking to this year, international equities have increasingly become an attractive option for investors looking to generate income and pursue higher total return potential. Investors may want to take cues from institutional players today and not wait until 2021 for international allocations.
