iShares MDAX is a great choice for traders looking to diversify their portfolios and capitalize on the German mid-cap market.

In addition to offering diversification and potential for alpha, iShares MDAX gives traders easy access to this attractive segment of the German market. It has a total expense ratio of 0.25%, making it highly cost-effective compared to other mid-cap index funds – so traders can get more bang for their buck.
