VelocityShares launches 3 emerging market ETFs comprised exclusively of depository receipts (DRs) listed in developed countries. The funds cover broad Emerging Market DRs (EMDR), Emerging Asia DRs (ASDR) and Russian DRs (RUDR). By sticking to DRs, the 3 new funds are far more concentrated in their holdings than existing ETFs in the space (example, EMDR has 305 holdings vs. 1,280 for IEMG). The 0.65% charged by the funds means they're generally pricey relative to established competitors like IEMG/VWO (0.18%), EEM (0.66%), SCHE (0.15%), GMF (0.59%), RSX (0.62%) and ERUS (0.60%).
