These Emerging Markets ETFs Have Some Allure

Attractive emerging market bond yields, though, are not without their risks. For example, many fixed-income observers are closely watching the Federal Reserve’s monetary policy. A Fed rate hike could cause a large exit out of emerging market assets in favor of better returns in the U.S.

However, it should be noted that most of the bonds held by EMB and PCY, the two largest emerging markets bond ETFs, are rated well into investment-grade territory.
