BKF Fund Description

BKF tracks a cap-weighted index of securities from the 'BRIC' economies of Brazil, Russia, India and China.

BKF Factset Analytics Insight

Investors looking for broad, cap-weighted exposure to the BRIC (Brazil, Russia, India & China) economies in a single ETF wrapper will find it in BKF. It holds roughly 300 securities and provides solid exposure to the 4 emerging titans even as it differs from our broader EM benchmark. BKF covers roughly 85% of the market in each country, so small caps are out of bounds. Country and sector weights can vary significantly over time as their respective fortunes rise and fall. Generally, state-owned financial and energy concerns loom large along with tech names. The fund has a long track record and charges a reasonable fee, but should be traded with care as with almost all EM finds.
