Single country emerging market ETFs fee cut
Time to polish the GEMs: Single country emerging market ETFs reduction of management fees.
The conditions are in place for emerging markets to sparkle. A stable global macroeconomic backdrop, easy monetary and fiscal policy across a number of developed and emerging countries, the USD has been softening and commodity prices continue to trend higher. Emerging market country indices have come back into fashion in recent months for good reason.
The gargantuan global monetary and fiscal policy stimulus effort across developed and emerging market economies in 2020 leaves abundant liquidity in the system which should continue to find its way into emerging market assets. Providing there is no sudden surge in inflation, policy makers will likely withdraw stimulus only gradually across economies. This leaves emerging markets in a sweet spot.
To offer investors quick and easy exposure to these strategic investments, in March 2021, we reduced the TER of several of our single country emerging market ETFs by 10bps.
