EUM Factset Analytics Insight
EUM is the less aggressive of the funds providing inverse exposure to the MSCI Emerging Markets Index, offering -1x daily gearing. As such, it's worth noting that the index includes South Korea as emerging, which some other indices do not and which may change the type of exposure investors receive here. The fund, like its sister fund EDZ and Direxion's EEV, promises to provide its exposure on a daily basis. As such, it's not designed to be used as a long-term hedge against products like EEM, but rather, to be used as a short-term trading vehicle. Those holding EUM for longer than a day must be prepared to rebalance their investment in EUM every day in order to avoid being taken for a ride by the mechanics of path dependency and decay. Most investors will be looking at EUM for short-term positions, and will find a fairly robust and liquid market with small spreads. For those who do end up holding the fund for longer periods, EUM carries a hefty expense ratio, so the potential costs can add up in a hurry.
