ETF of the Week: iShares J.P. Morgan USD Emerging Markets Bond ETF (EMB)

ETF Trends CEO Tom Lydon discussed the iShares J.P. Morgan USD Emerging Markets Bond ETF (EMB) on this week’s “ETF of the Week” podcast with Chuck Jaffe on the MoneyLife Show.

EMB seeks to track the investment results of the J.P. Morgan EMBI® Global Core Index composed of U.S. dollar-denominated, emerging market bonds. The fund generally will invest at least 90% of its assets in the component securities of the underlying index and may invest up to 10% of its assets in certain futures, options and swap contracts, cash and cash equivalents, as well as in securities not included in the underlying index. The index is a broad, diverse U.S. dollar-denominated emerging markets debt benchmark that tracks the total return of actively traded external debt instruments in emerging market countries.
