AFK Fund Description

The VanEck Vectors Africa Index ETF tracks the MVIS GDP Africa Index, a GDP and market-cap-weighted index of companies generating a majority of their revenues in Africa.

AFK FactSet Analytics Insight

AFK is the sole choice for broad Africa coverage in an ETF. Regarding country exposure within Africa, AFK's index focuses on GDP rather than market cap. This places the emphasis on each country's economic footprint rather than the market value of equity. The distinction is also significant as Nigeria recently surpassed South Africa as the continent’s GDP leader—a change that will boost Nigeria's presence in the portfolio. AFK’s index takes a broad approach to eligibility: It includes companies that earn a majority of revenues in Africa, rather than restricting eligibility to companies domiciled in the continent. The fund is decently sized in terms of assets under management Still, any fund covering countries like Nigeria and Egypt won't be cheap to hold or to trade. AFK charges 81 bps and trades at reasonable spreads, given context of exposure.
