Emerging markets are a favored investment arena. One of the draws is that the players are always changing. ETFs are abundant in this area as the barriers to investing in emerging markets for individual investors are difficult to overcome. This is why ETFs in emerging markets are increasingly popular and growing. Each year there are more and more ETFs providing exposure to emerging markets. Here are four ETFs that are not even one year old.
One of the newest things on the market is low-volatility ETFs. They are nice for squeamish investors looking to get in on emerging markets or in Europe's current economic crisis. Emerging markets have long been thought to be exclusive to the investor with a strong appetite for risk. With the current economic crisis in Europe, the same could be said for them as well. The volatility in the global markets can make one wary of opening themselves up to too much risk. This can lead to some highly limited, low diversification portfolios. Low-volatility ETFs provide a solution to that problem. There are already several out there that are performing fairly well.
