VWO Fund Description

The Vanguard FTSE Emerging Markets fund tracks a market-cap-weighted index of emerging-market stocks, excluding South Korea.

VWO FactSet Analytics Insight

VWO is an extremely large and liquid fund with a very low fee. In 2013 it switched to a FTSE index which does not count South Korea as an emerging market, putting it in direct competition with Schwab’s SCHE rather than iShares’ EEM. In November 2015 the fund initiated another change, this time to include both small-cap stocks and China A-shares. It eased into this change with a dynamic transitional index, completing the transition in September 2016. Since VWO has no exposure to South Korea, it has more space for China, Brazil, India and the rest of the emerging nations compared with our MSCI benchmark.
Including stocks from the Chinese mainland and going deeper into the market-cap spectrum made the fund even more representative of the EM space, but also reduced underlying liquidity somewhat. Still, VWO is a solid choice for comprehensive and very inexpensive exposure to emerging markets without South Korea.
