Emerging Markets Equities ETFs

Most of these ETFs tend to divide their assets among 20 or more nations, with a majority focus on the emerging markets of Asia and Latin America rather than on those of the Middle East, Africa, or Europe. The investments can focus on equities, fixed income, and other assets. Emerging markets are often touted as having strong growth prospects due to investments in infrastructure, increased exports, and the rising domestic consumption of the middle class, but the consistency with which positive economic conditions sustain is often not so reliable. Because of this, we believe this category is better suited for aggressive investors that have the risk appetite for greater fluctuations in their portfolio balances.
