New Dividend ETFs From RBC

RBC Global Asset Management launched 5 new dividend ETFs targeting various sectors in the international markets. These ETFs offer monthly income, along with broad international diversification and reduced foreign currency risk.

Let’s look at these 5 ETFs in brief:

RBC Quant Emerging Markets Dividend Leaders ETF (TSX: RXD, MER: 0.64%) – Holds dividend-paying companies in the emerging markets that have growth potential based on modified cap weighting methodology. The ticker symbol for the US$ version is RXD.u.

RBC Quant European Dividend Leaders ETF (TSX: RPD, MER: 0.49%) – Holds dividend-paying companies in the European markets that have growth potential based on modified cap weighting methodology. RPD is the first European dividend trading on the Canadian stock exchange that is not hedged. The ticker symbol for the US$ version is RPD.u.

The three other ETFs are currency-hedged. These are:

RBC Quant U.S. Dividend Leaders (CAD Hedged) ETF (TSX: RHU)

RBC Quant European Dividend Leaders (CAD Hedged) ETF (TSX: RHP)

RBC Quant EAFE Dividend Leaders (CAD Hedged) ETF (TSX: RHI)

Altogether, there are 8 RBC Quant Dividend Leaders ETFs and 17 total ETFs offered by the RBC Global Asset Management.

How do the fees for these MERs compare? Let’s look at RBC Quant Emerging Markets Dividend Leaders ETF and some other emerging market dividend ETFS. The SPDR® S&P Emerging Markets Dividend ETF charges 0.59% MER, iShares Emerging Markets Dividend ETF charges 0.68%, and HAJ Horizons Active Emerging Markets Dividend ETF charges 0.80 percent. As you can see, RBC’s MER is fairly similar with other ETFs for the same emerging market dividend ETFs.

Always do your research before buying any investment products and seek professional advice if you are not comfortable picking your own.
