Frontier And Emerging Market ETFs, ETNs And Closed-End Funds

All below are ETFs to my knowledge unless specified as closed-end funds or ETNs. This is not intended to be a complete list but my best effort at it. Please put suggestions and corrections in the comments below.

If you like this list please do me the three courtesies of registering and following me on Seeking Alpha, and crediting me if you use it elsewhere.

It is your obligation to double-check the accuracy of the investments listed and investigate how well each investment vehicle performs before investing. Your investments require your own due diligence.

For closed-end funds, CEF Connect is an excellent starting place for data.

If you use ETNs, make sure you understand the definition and risks.

Additional detail will be added as I have time or it supplied by readers in the comments.

A complete list of my disclosures regarding Mongolia may be found at the Mongolia Weekly Update which also serves as my home page for Mongolia-related topics. I have no other germane disclosures in accounts I personally manage at this time. I have an account managed by a broker that is managed at his discretion and may trade linked ETFs, ETNs and closed-end funds listed from time to time at his discretion, however I have no input in that decision making process.
