Emerging Market Momentum May Still Have Legs

ETF Trends publisher Tom Lydon discussed the iShares Core MSCI Emerging Markets ETF (IEMG) on this week’s “ETF of the Week” podcast with Chuck Jaffe on the MoneyLife Show.

Emerging markets may outpace developed markets in the year ahead as the emerging market rebound is still in its early stages.

IEMG is quickly gaining popularity among ETF investors. It is now the second largest emerging market-related ETF with $43.9 billion in assets under management.

It was the fourth most popular ETF of 2017, attracting $16.6 billion in assets last year.

Top holdings include Tencent Holdings 4.9%, Samsung 3.6%, Alibaba 3.3%, Taiwan semiconductor 3.1% and Naspers 2.0%.
