EEMS Fund Description

EEMS tracks a market-cap-weighted index of emerging markets stocks with market capitalizations between $200M and $1.5B.

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 and performance 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. However, traders should watch out for EEMS' weak liquidity, which has often led to colossal spreads that make the use of limit orders a must. The story is only marginally better with block trades 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. EEMS charges a competitive free, but it's hardly a bargain in terms of Efficiency despite close tracking and some recovery of its fees via securities lending. Overall, EEMS' exposure is unimpeachable, but there are many caveats with this fund.
