Investing in Africa ETFs / Africa ETF List (Region Wide)

A list of multi-country Africa ETFs potentially covering the whole continent consists of the Market Vectors Africa ETF (NYSEARCA: AFK) from Van Eck which tracks the Dow Jones Africa Titans 50 Index and the SPDR S&P Emerging Middle East & Africa ETF (NYSEARCA: GAF) from State Street SPDR which tracks the S&P Mid-East and Africa BMI Index. Investors should keep in mind that these Africa ETFs probably have their biggest exposure to South Africa stocks, but many of these companies would also have operations or investments all over Africa. In addition and besides our Africa ETF list, Middle East/Africa ETF list and EMEA ETF list pages plus our separate pages for Egypt ETFs, Nigeria ETFs and South Africa ETFs, investors should check out our Africa ADR list page which includes links to our Namibia ADR list, South Africa ADR list, Zambia ADR list and Zimbabwe ADR list pages.
