Read MoreHide Full Article

Small-cap growth ETFs like IJT are interesting choices for investors as these tend to offer more returns when the U.S. economy is performing well. Growth investing is basically a momentum play, which makes it a great strategy in a trending market. Growth funds generally comprise stocks that have higher price-to-book ratios and higher estimated growth than other stocks. Small-cap companies usually focus more on the domestic segment compared with larger companies, which tend to have more international exposure. U.S. economic fundamentals seem to be strong with a slew of upbeat economic data, strong corporate earnings and Trump's tax reform proposal. However, geopolitical risks coupled with political uncertainty might be a drag on this fund.
