ZWU or ZWE Both are good defensive strategies. ZWE: He's not that bullish on Europe, but at least you get income from writing the covered calls here. ZWU: Utilities are much less volatile and more stable, yet expose you to Europe. If you belive in Europe and playing defence, then both ETFs are fine. These two ETFs are highly correlated, rising and falling together. Note that utilities are risk-off, not for you if you have long-term bullish.

(A Top Pick Apr 08/19, Down 1%) This ETF is based on Nobel Prize winning behavioural scientific research about human overreaction to market moves. BHAV capitalizes on the irrational foibles/mistakes of traders (i.e. an earnings miss that results in a 10% drop).

It's a good product, because it's conservative. The dividends will mute volatility, and there are covered calls on top of that. At least you make money on writing the call options. This offers a lot lower volatility than others in this space.

An ETF that's been around forever, trading in US dollars. He doesn't know if this will go up or down, but his question is: What is your time horizon? This will do well in the long run.
