Five Best Performing Country ETFs Of 2015

Unlike last year, 2015 has been lackluster for stocks across the world. This is especially true as Vanguard FTSE All-World ex-US ETF (VEU - ETF report), targeting the international equity market, has lost about 3.9% so far this year compared with a loss of 2.6% for iShares MSCI ACWI ETF (ACWI - ETF report), which targets the global stock market including the U.S.

The vicious trading in oil, slumping commodities, a strong dollar, Fed uncertainty and a slowdown in the global economy weighed on the stocks throughout the year. In particular, the Greece crisis engulfed the stock market for the most part of the first half and then China played the major culprit in the second half of the year. In addition, a few developed and developing economies suffered from slow growth amid streaks of volatility and uncertainty (see: all the World ETFs here).
