Portfolio Fund Detail

Willis Owen Research Commentary

This index tracker provides a very low-cost way to gain access to emerging-markets shares. At 0.21%, the ongoing charge of the fund is highly competitive, and it is one of the cheapest passive emerging-markets funds available. The fund fully replicates the MSCI Emerging Markets Index by investing in all its constituents. The fund management process is geared toward delivering the index's returns at the minimum possible cost. In addition, the fund has tracked its benchmark tightly. This market cap-weighted approach to emerging markets has its drawbacks. The fund has significant exposure to China, accounting for 25% to 30% (via Hong Kong-listed stocks) of the total index weighting.
