For those seeking the cheapest exposure to a basket of broad emerging market currencies, CEW is your fund. For 55 bps, it equally weights its exposure to 15 emerging market currencies. Thethe cheapest exposure to a basket of broad emerging market currencies equal-weighting scheme underweights the currencies of major trading partners like China in favor of increased exposure to the Colombian and Philippine pesos. CEW invests in nondeliverable forward contracts and holds collateral in US Treasury bills and repos. As a result, the fund can deviate from what investors might expect by simply looking at the spot prices of the basket of currencies. Still, its relatively large asset base means the fund is an investor favorite. (Insight updated 06/24/2014)

Liquidity is fairly decent for CEW. However, spreads are still relatively wide, increasing the cost of entering and exiting the fund for short-term investors. For those looking to make smaller trades, using limit orders will be your best bet. Larger investors will find liquidity providers to be a great resource when trading in size. (Insight updated 06/24/2014)

CEW ETF.com Fit Insight

CEW differs from our benchmark in a number of ways. The fund equally weights its basket of 15 emerging market currencies in contrast to our trade-weighted benchmark. The biggest difference is an underweighting to currencies such as the Chinese renminbi and Mexican peso, and overweighting to the Philippine peso. CEW uses nondeliverable forward contracts and invests collateral in US Treasury bills and repos. As a result, it can deviate from spot prices in the actual currencies. (Insight updated 06/24/2014)
