VWOB Fund Description

VWOB tracks a market value weighted index of emerging market sovereign debt, denominated in USD.

VWOB Factset Analytics Insight

VWOB limits its scope to USD-denominated emerging market debt. As a result, investors avoid (for better or worse) any direct impact from currency volatilities. The avoidance of locally-denominated issues limits the impact of currency volatilities on portfolio returns, though FX costs will still be an issue. Note that dollar-denominated debt doesn't imply a superior credit quality: Emerging market locally-denominated issues tend to carry higher credit ratings than USD-denominated debt. The fund also skews toward the longer end of the yield curve, resulting in longer maturity and higher sensitivity to changes in interest rates. The fund sees significant daily volume, though retail investors will encounter sizeable spreads at times, and the underlying basket has some illiquid components that may pose obstacles to block trades. The fund charges a low expense ratio and tracking is generally solid, though it shows significant volatility at times.
