IEMG Fund Description

The iShares Core MSCI Emerging Markets ETF tracks a market-cap-weighted index of emerging-market firms, covering 99% of market capitalization.

IEMG Factset Analytics Insight

IEMG offers outstanding coverage of emerging markets in a low-priced and liquid package. As part of the line of 'Core' ETFs from BlackRock, it offers very similar but more comprehensive exposure than its sister fund EEM by including smaller firms in the portfolio. It is also far cheaper to hold than EEM even if it can’t match its awesome trading volume.IEMG follows the same MSCI index as our benchmark and so it counts South Korea as an emerging market, in contrast to FTSE-based funds such as VWO. Since its 2012 launch, IEMG has amassed a huge asset base and very deep liquidity. IEMG is our "Analyst Pick" in the segment for long-term investors who are looking for cheap, liquid, and comprehensive exposure to emerging markets.
