Lastly, the iShares MSCI South Korea Capped ETF (NYSEArca: EWY), Horizons Korea KOSPI 200 ETF (NYSEArca: HKOR), First Trust South Korea AlphaDEX Fund (NYSEArca: FKO) and SPDR MSCI South Korea Quality Mix ETF (NYSEArca: QKOR) can help an investor gain exposure to South Korea’s equities market.
Emerging market investors are also focusing on the boom in consumer spending and technological growth.
“In many emerging markets the speed with which young consumers are adapting to technological change, in areas such as ecommerce and online shopping, is much faster than in the US,” Richard Sneller, head of emerging market equities at Baillie Gifford, told the Financial Times. “Trends that we hoped would emerge 15-20 years ago have come to generate significant cash flows.”
Investors interested in accessing these sectors can also consider related ETF options. For instance, the EGShares Emerging Markets Consumer ETF (NYSEArca: ECON), EGShares Emerging Markets Domestic Demand ETF (NYSEArca: EMDD), iShares MSCI Emerging Markets Consumer Discretionary ETF (NYSEArca: EMDI) and WisdomTree Emerging Markets Consumer Growth Fund (NasdaqGS: EMCG) provide broad exposure to emerging market consumer sectors.
Furthermore, the Emerging Markets Internet & Ecommerce ETF (NYSEArca: EMQQ) focuses on internet names, notably those that cater toward online shopping or e-commerce.
