Not all emerging markets ETFs have been stung by the outflow bug. The iShares Core MSCI Emerging Markets ETF (NYSEArca: IEMG) has attracted almost $367 million since the start of the year while the WisdomTree Emerging Markets SmallCap Dividend Fund (NYSEArca: DGS) has brought in nearly $18 million. DGS has some points of allure with a 30-day SEC yield of almost 3.2% and its heavy weights to lower beta developing markets as Taiwan, South Korea and Malaysia combine for over 48% of the ETF’s weight.

The flows picture is mixed, but leans negative when it comes to emerging markets bond ETFs, although the iShares J.P. Morgan USD Emerging Markets Bond ETF (NYSEArca: EMB) and the Vanguard Emerging Markets Government Bond ETF (NasdaqGS: VWOB) are inflow positive to start 2014.
