Jun. 3, 2013, 6:22 AM8 months after it initially announced it was changing the benchmark indexes on 22 key ETFs, 2 more Vanguard funds officially shift from MSCI to FTSE and CRSP indexes. The Vanguard Total Stock Market ETF (VTI) will now track the CRSP U.S. Total Market Index while the Vanguard Total International Stock ETF (VXUS) will now track the FTSE Global All Cap ex-U.S. Index. According to a recent statement, Vanguard expects that the licensing agreements with FTSE and CRSP will lead to lower costs over time for all funds involved in the benchmark changes. | Jun. 3, 2013, 6:22 AM
Dec. 7, 2012, 12:46 PMWhy do investors continue to pour money into EWJ and expose themselves to currency risk when the DBJP offers the same Japanese stock exposure, but hedged against the yen? Another of Dennis Hudachek's 10 Overlooked ETFs is the INDA, tracking the same Indian index as the INP, but with lower expenses. And don't forget IAU, basically the same exposure as GLD, but at 15 bps cheaper per year. | Dec. 7, 2012, 12:46 PM | 5 Comments

The MSCI EAFE ETF (IEFA) and the MSCI Emerging Markets ETF (IEMG) are notable because they seemingly compete with other iShares offerings - EFA and EEM. The other two are the MSCI Total International Stock ETF (IXUS) and the Core Short-Term U.S. Bond ETF (ISTB). | Oct. 22, 2012, 4:48 PM

Emerging-market stocks are rising on "bets of more stimulus measures and policy cooperation by key global economies," says fund manager Chu Moon Sung. "Much of the woes over Europe’s debt crisis and the slowing global economy appear to be priced in." But short-term price rises and possible long-term benefits don't mean the in-between will be smooth sailing.| Jul. 17, 2012, 3:19 AM | 1 Comment
Jun. 29, 2012, 11:11 AMWith inflows looking to have returned to emerging market ETFs, Paul Weisbruch singles out one - the WisdomTree EM High Yielding (DEM) - noting it's added about 3% AUM in the past few sessions. DEM is dividend weighted, giving it less exposure to the BRICs than the market-cap weighted EEM and VWO. | Jun. 29, 2012, 11:11 AM

This week's EU summit "is unlikely to resolve the crisis," opines Fitch in its bi-annual Global Credit Outlook. "Upward momentum in emerging market sovereign ratings has stalled," says the agency, though adding it hasn't yet reversed to worsening credit.| Jun. 27, 2012, 11:33 AM | 2 Comments
Jun. 15, 2012, 8:07 AMMore on the BRICs: A consensus forms. After pulling out funds for 8 of the last 10 weeks, asset managers have their lowest exposure to emerging markets since October, according to a BAML survey. The MSCI BRIC Index is off 25% Y/Y and the rupee, ruble, and real are the 3 worst-performing currencies in Q2, according to Bloomberg.

Jun. 14, 2012, 7:44 AMEmerging markets are starting to regain some of their investment appeal. Shares are beginning to look cheap after falling nearly 20% from the year's highs and investors are encouraged that central banks in China, Brazil and elsewhere are taking steps to boost growth. The MSCI Emerging Markets Index could gain over 30% by year-end, says Morgan Stanley. | Jun. 14, 2012, 7:44 AM | 3 Comments

An alternative to cap-weighted funds like VWO and EEM for investors interested in broad emerging markets exposure would be dividend-weighted funds like DEM, writes Dennis Hudachek. The fund's methodology leaves it with a large yield and quite different country exposures - China, Korea, and India nearly disappearing, and Brazil and Taiwan becoming more prominent.| Jun. 8, 2012, 11:27 AM
