ETF Trends publisher Tom Lydon discussed the Vanguard FTSE Emerging Markets ETF (VWO) on this week’s “ETF of the Week” podcast with Chuck Jaffe on the MoneyLife Show.

VWO is a broad EM play to access a relatively cheap area of the global market.

Strong manufacturing, industrial production and trade data helped support the strongest four-month stretch of net inflows to emerging markets since 2013.

VWO tracks the FTSE Emerging Markets All Cap China A Inclusion Index.

Top country: China 28.2%, Taiwan 15.8%, India 12.1%, Brazil 8.7%, South Africa 7.6%, Mexico 4.1%, Russia 4.1%, Thailand 3.9%, and Malaysia 3.4%.
