Group F: European market sector ETF's

Investing in a European market sector ETF has some advantages being a European investor. First and foremost you can trade in Euro’s. Nobody wants to experience price fluctuations caused by currency fluctuations.

Secondly it really is easier to make a prediction for a European market sector when you are living in Europe. Our sensors are more open and we absorb more news through our own country and region as we do from other continents.

Investing in a specific European market sector may have its advantages too. A single market sector may very well outperform a mixed index.
