Top Emerging Market ETFs Of First Half 2017

WisdomTree Emerging Markets ex-State-Owned Enterprise ETF (XSOE - Free Report) – Up 24.4% YTD

The fund can entice investors having less faith in the state-owned emerging market companies, but still intending to tap the region's growth story. According to the issuer, the MSCI emerging market index generated lesser returns than the U.S. markets in previous years for which the anemic performance of the state-owned enterprises was responsible (read: This New Emerging Market ETF Avoids State-Owned Firms).

In terms of geographic exposure, China (27.5%), South Korea (16.5%) and Taiwan (11.5%) have a double-digit exposure each. Information Technology was the top sector of the fund with about one-third of total exposure.

First Trust Emerging Markets Small Cap AlphaDEX Fund (FEMS - Free Report) – Up 22.3% YTD

The fund has a tilt toward Taiwan (30.8%) and China (13.5%) and focuses on small-cap companies of the emerging markets. Since small-cap companies better reflect the domestic market, this fund had every reason to score better when EM equities are trending up.

iShares Edge MSCI Multifactor Emerging Markets ETF (EMGF - Free Report) – Up 19.5% YTD

The fund offers quality picks on the EM space. Inexpensive stocks, financially strong companies, trending stocks and relatively low market cap companies are included in the fund. China, South Korea and Taiwan are top three geographies of EMGF.
