Ishare global healthcare ETF

Looking at the current situation, COVID19 will continue to be rampant till 2022 or more. This maybe a good investment

Any thoughts?

IXJ is global whereas XLV and VHT are US based. IXJ is more diverse than the other 2. If portfolio is not high, then the difference in terms of expense ratio is not significant. Assuming if you purchase with FSM, monthly commission is like US$1.07. Quite reasonable
