Written by David Fabian, January 10th, 2018
Emerging market stocks have been red-hot over the past year amid a global rise in asset prices fueled by economic confidence. As a result, exchange-traded funds that track these companies have become an increasingly bigger focus among investor portfolio decisions.
The most common starting place in the hunt for emerging market exposure are the largest and most well-known funds in this group. The Vanguard FTSE Emerging Market ETF (VWO), for instance, has over $68 billion dedicated to a diverse group of nearly 5,000 stocks spread throughout the globe. China, Taiwan, India, and Brazil dominate the top country rankings in this broad index for a miserly cost of just 0.14% annually to own.
