EMB Fund Description

EMB tracks an index of US-dollar-denominated sovereign debt issued by emerging-market countries with more than $1B outstanding and at least two years remaining in maturity.

EMB Factset Analytics Insight

EMB was one of the first emerging-market debt ETFs to be launched, and it still enjoys strong assets and liquidity. Like many peer funds, but in contrast with our benchmark, EMB holds USD-denominated rather than local-currency debt. This eliminates direct currency risk for US investors, but raises the possibility that a strengthening dollar or weakening local currency could make the debt harder to service, increasing credit risk. Each issuer must have at least $1B outstanding and bonds need at least 2 years remaining to maturity. The fund typically favors longer maturities than our benchmark and tends to lean toward riskier paper, both of which increase yield.EMB charges a competitive headline fee, and tracking data indicate that real-world holding costs have usually been reasonable. One of EMB’s strongest selling points is its strong liquidity, making it the de facto choice for traders. The fund earns a spot on the Opportunities List for USD-denominated exposure in a liquid package.
