Time to Take a Second Look at Emerging Market Bond ETFs

For example, income-oriented investors may find much more attractive yield opportunities with emerging market debt, such as the broad VanEck Vectors Emerging Markets Aggregate Bond ETF (NYSEArca: EMAG), which includes a combination of U.S. dollar-, euro- and local currency-denominated bonds, comes with an attractive 4.46% 30-day SEC yield.

The VanEck Vectors J.P. Morgan EM Local Currency Bond ETF (NYSEArca: EMLC), which tracks emerging market bonds denominated in the local currencies or in the currency of the issuing country, has a 6.01% 30-day SEC yield.

Additionally, the VanEck Vectors Emerging Markets High Yield Bond ETF (NYSEArca: HYEM), which targets USD-denominated speculative-grade emerging-market bonds, has a 6.52% 30-day SEC yield.
