RNEM Fund Description

RNEM tracks an index of emerging market stocks selected for low volatility.

RNEM Factset Analytics Insight

RNEM seeks stability by filtering the universe of large- and midcap emerging market stocks for companies with historically low volatility of returns. Within each emerging market country, the fund selects the 25 stocks with the lowest volatility over the previous 12 months. The resulting portfolio is sorted into country/sector buckets, with each bucket set to market weight at each semi-annual rebalance. Holdings are equal-weighted within the buckets. The fund’s use of a Nasdaq parent index means that it includes both Korea and Taiwan as emerging markets; that’s in line with our MSCI benchmark, but investors may reasonably disagree on the status of these two countries.RNEM charges a hefty fee for its low-vol methodology, which may be hard to justify when competitors—such as iShares’ EEMV—provide similar exposure for a fraction of the price.

RNEM MSCI ESG Analytics Insight

First Trust Emerging Markets Equity Select ETF has an MSCI ESG Fund Rating of BBB based on a score of 4.65 out of 10.
