EEMS Factset Analytics Insight

EEMS captures emerging-market small-caps very well, tracking the same index we use for our segment benchmark, and showing microscopic differences in exposure only due to the fund's optimized index replication strategy. EEMS holds a broad portfolio that avoids any heavy allocations toward any one region, country, sector, or firm. Unlike some peers, the fund includes exposure to both Taiwan and South Korea. Overall, EEMS perfectly captures the space. Due to the weak liquidity of the underlying securities and the difficulties that arise from a portfolio that overwhelmingly trades in hours that US markets are closed, the use of limit orders are a must. Overall, EEMS' exposure is unimpeachable, but there are many caveats with this fund.
