EEM Fund Description

EEM tracks an index of emerging-market firms weighted by market cap.

EEM Factset Analytics Insight

Segment powerhouse EEM boasts massive AUM and hefty trading volume, even after losing its place as the largest emerging-market ETF to arch-rival VWO, from Vanguard. The fund’s robust liquidity and deep options market are impressive. While its expense ratio is surprisingly high for a vanilla fund, the fund’s solid tracking makes it more competitive on holding costs than the headline fee suggests.EEM matches the market well. In fact, it uses a similar, albeit narrower version of our MSCI benchmark. The main difference is that the fund does not go as far down the market-cap spectrum as our benchmark, ignoring many small-cap and all micro-cap firms. Still, the coverage is excellent. Since it follows an MSCI index, EEM counts South Korea as emerging, while FTSE-based rival VWO does not.Overall, EEM provides extremely liquid, neutral exposure to emerging markets and is well suited to active traders, but for long-term investors, cheaper choices exist.
