Please note: like most trading venues, we display the current mid-market rates in our price charts. When you trade, you get the current bid or ask price depending on whether you are buying or selling. There is always a slight difference between the mid-market and the current bid or ask prices. This is a natural result of how Exchange order books work.
The iShares MSCI Emerging Markets ETF was launched in the spring of 2003 to harness the inherent growth opportunities associated with developing countries.
It replicates the MSCI Emerging Markets index comprising some 1,000-plus mid- and large-cap companies. Emerging countries include: Argentina, Brazil, Chile, China, Colombia, Czech Republic, Egypt, Greece, Hungary, India, Indonesia, Korea, Malaysia, Mexico, Pakistan, Peru, Philippines, Poland, Qatar, Russia, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey and United Arab Emirates.
EEM tracks some 800 stocks. As an exchange-traded fund, it trades like a stock. Its assets are in excess of $26 billion. Two giant Chinese companies, Alibaba (BABA) and Tencent (700), account for 13% of holdings. In fact, roughly 40% of EEM is weighted to China, mainly technology. The Chinese weighting has been rising over the past two years as MSCI adds more “A-shares” of China-listed companies.
