UAE Factset Analytics Insight

UAE offers vanilla coverage to a truly emerging market. The United Arab Emirates has progressed from frontier market status to emerging market status in the eyes of indexing-giant MSCI, and iShares wasted little time in bringing UAE to market. UAE’s basket—while marketlike—is nonetheless concentrated in a handful of stocks, most of which are in the financial sector. Oil and gas production continues to be a big part of the economy, but it’s the banks that dominate the equity market. The fund tracks a capped version of our benchmark, which places an upper bound on concentration. The headline fee is reasonable, but trading expenses push all-in cost much higher. Asset levels, viable at present, are low enough to warrant monitoring going forward. In all, UAE offers exposure to a hard-to-access corner of the equity market, with costs that reflect this reality.
