EMGF Fund Description

EMGF tracks an index of large- and midcap emerging market firms. Stocks are selected and weighted to increase exposure to 4 factors (quality, value, momentum and small size) while maintaining similar characteristics to the MSCI Emerging Markets Index.

EMGF Factset Analytics Insight

EMGF, which launched in December 2015, aims to provide factor-enhanced exposure to emerging market stocks, with guardrails to keep sector, geographic and risk exposure in line with its cap-weighted parent index. Like its peers in the FactorSelect suite, the fund uses an optimizer to boost exposure to four popular investment factors (quality, value, momentum and small size) that are historically associated with outperformance. By holding risk and other exposures constant, EMGF takes a more nuanced approach than multi-factor competitor QEMM, which simply equal-weights three factor-based subindexes without optimization. Exposure to EMGF's plain-vanilla parent index can be had through EEM.While it offers specialized exposure to emerging market stocks, EMGF still looks expensive next to an increasingly crowded field of competitors.
