State Street Launches Beyond BRIC ETF

  • State Street's (STT) Global Advisors unit launched the SPDR MSCI EM Beyond BRIC ETF (EMBB) this morning to meet the ever growing investor interest in underplayed emerging markets.
  • With an expense ratio of 0.55%, this new ETF will bypass the now crowded BRIC countries (Brazil, Russia, India and China), instead investing in developing market stocks with less outside exposure; Chile, the Czech Republic and Indonesia to name a few.
  • Another Beyond BRIC ETF (BBRC) was launched just over a year ago with a net expense ratio of 0.58%.
  • Emerging Market ETFs: EEM, VWO, EDC, EDZ, SCHE, IEMG, EEV, PIE, ADRE, EUM, EET, GMM, EEME, EMCR, DBEM, EWEM, FEM, EMLB, EMSA, EMFT, EMDR

    As a reminder: the BRICs have underperformed the "new darlings of EMs" (non-BRICs or the Beyond BRIC) by 28% over the last 3 years. If you are a bit contrarian, you'll buy the BRIC ETF against this one. Outflows from the BRICs over the last years have inflated the "new darlings" way too much. Now, in relative and absolute terms, they are extremely expensive: think Mexico, Columbia, Indonesia, Phillippines, Turkey.
