What's up with Emerging Market ETFs?

Updated: Aug 4, 2021

Yesterday, we saw Anthony Doyle, Multi-Asset specialist from Fidelity chat with Oran D'arcy, Business Development Manager from the ASX discuss emerging markets ETFs. If you missed the chat you can check it out below:

In their talk they go through what's in the investable universe and it's size ($8 trillion spread across 1,300+ companies), the impacts that Covid had on tourism and commodities and more.

In ETFtracker, we can use the app to take a look at Emerging Markets in a bit more detail. Here's some stats:

FUM of $1.8 billion as of March 2021 (all in AUD)

This is across 6 ETFs with the largest being IEM (iShares MSCI Emerging Markets ETF) with $938m million. This was followed by

  • VGE (Vanguard FTSE Emerging Market Shares ETF) - $534.4m

  • FEMX (Fidelity Global Emerging Markets Fund) - $222.5m

  • EMKT (VanEck Vectors MSCI Multifactor Emerging Markets Equity ETF) - $47.2m

  • EMMG (BetaShares Legg Mason Emerging Markets Fund) - $23.0m

  • WEMG (SPDR S&P Emerging Markets Fund) - $17.6m

IEM has higher level of total returns versus VGE since Jan 2020

This is using total price returns as published by the ASX/Chi-X for market returns and this assumes dividends are reinvested.

Best share price returns since beginning of 2020 was EMKT followed by FEMX

This is at the time of writing (936pm - 19th April 2020). Putting all 6 ETF options baselined to 100 from 1 January 2020, they all had similar trajectories but more recently, EMKT has eked away better performance ending up at 8.3% higher than the baseline.
