This article was originally published on ETFTrends.com.

The Next 11 or N-11--sounds like a science fiction movie sequel or a bigger-than-necessary boy band, but in fact, it represents the next 11 emerging economies dubbed by global investment firm Goldman Sachs. For potential emerging markets (EM) investors, they may want to consider looking into eight funds, in particular, that represent these up and coming markets.

  1. iShares MSCI Turkey Index (TUR) : seeks to track the investment results of the MSCI Turkey IMI 25/50 Index. The underlying index consists of stocks traded primarily on the Istanbul Stock Exchange (ISE).
  2. Market Vectors Africa Index (AFK) : seeks to replicate as closely as possible the price and yield performance of the MVIS® GDP Africa Index. The index includes local listings of companies that are incorporated in Africa and listings of companies incorporated outside of Africa but that have at least 50% of their revenues/related assets in Africa.
  3. Market Vectors Vietnam Index (VNM) : seeks to replicate as closely as possible, before fees and expenses, the price and yield performance of the MVIS® Vietnam Index. The index includes securities of Vietnamese companies. A company is generally considered to be a Vietnamese company if it is incorporated in Vietnam or is incorporated outside of Vietnam but has at least 50% of its revenues/related assets in Vietnam.
  4. iShares MSCI Philippines Index (EPHE) : seeks to track the investment results of the MSCI Philippines Investable Market Index (IMI). The index is a free float-adjusted market capitalization-weighted index designed to measure the performance of the Philippine equity markets.
  5. Market Vectors Egypt Index (EGPT) : seeks to replicate as closely as possible, before fees and expenses, the price and yield performance of the MVIS® Egypt Index. The index includes securities of Egyptian companies. A company is generally considered to be an Egyptian company if it is incorporated in Egypt or is incorporated outside Egypt but has at least 50% of its revenues/related assets in Egypt. Such companies may include small- and medium-capitalization companies.
  6. Market Vectors Indonesia Index (IDX) : seeks to replicate as closely as possible, before fees and expenses, the price and yield performance of the MVIS® Indonesia Index.

The fund will at all times invest at least 80% of its assets in the securities of its underlying index and in depositary receipts representing securities in its underlying index. The underlying index is a free float-adjusted market capitalization-weighted index with a capping methodology applied to issuer weights so that no single issuer of a component exceeds 25% of the underlying index weight, and all issuers with a weight above 5% do not cumulatively exceed 50% of the underlying index weight.
