The emerging markets exchange traded funds (ETFs) and indexes have outperformed domestic markets recently. The MSCI Emerging Markets Index has outperformed the S&P 500 by 134.46% over the past three years. Many investors are divided over whether these markets can continue this trend or if there will be a sharp pullback, reports Carl Delfeld for Forbes. In fact, ProShares launched two new ETFs last week that will allow investors to play emerging markets up or down – ProShares Short MSCI Emerging Markets (EUM) and ProShares UltraShort MSCI Emerging Markets (EEV).
WisdomTree recently launched an ETF that tracks an emerging market small-cap index. It offers pure international exposure to small-cap stocks from 19 emerging market nations.
The idea seems to be that so many investors are interested in emerging market ETFs, providers are making sure there is an ideal fund for every type of portfolio.
