Asia Pacific Dividend ETF

Of course dividend is not a market sector but in my opinion this particular Asia dividend ETF which has also a quotation in Amsterdam may not be absent here. 

Within this dividend ETF you will find stocks from companies in both Asia and the Pacific (Australia and New Zealand). The Aussies and the Kiwis are very depended upon Asia so it is entirely logic to add them to the party. 

In this Asia Pacific ETF the common denominator is paying more than average dividends.
