Investing in stocks from Eurozone countries can be very easy and cost-effective by using a single ETF that tracks a broadly diversified Eurozone index which is weighted by market capitalisation. Currently, the following indices can be considered for a diversified investment in EU companies:
  This curated investment guide allows you to compare both the available ETFs and the underlying indices on Eurozone countries and to select an ETF that fits your preferences best.

You can find these in our curated investment guide on socially responsible (SRI) ETFs for Europe.
