FEMB Fund Description

FEMB is an actively managed fund that invests in a broad range of bonds issued by emerging market sovereign, sub-sovereign and quasi-sovereign entities, denominated in local currencies.

FEMB Factset Analytics Insight

FEMB is the newest entrant to the growing emerging market sovereign bond fund space. It charges 85 bps for the only active strategy in the segment. Like other funds that hold debt denominated in local currencies, FX volatilities will be material drivers in FEMB’s total return, both upside and downside. Additionally, underpinned by the interest-rate parity model, the impact of interest-rate volatilities in the US will manifest itself either in the forms of local interest rates or FX volatilities. As such, investors of foreign sovereign debts are not fully shielded from interest-rate volatilities in the US. Regardless, trade the fund with care, as its market is likely to be shallow for some time. Check back in 6 months for a comprehensive portfolio analysis.
