    Investors Are Turning to Emerging Market ETFs in the New Year

    As investors return to the markets with a more risk-on attitude, emerging market-related ETFs have been a popular play so far in the new year. For example, the iShares Core MSCI Emerging Markets ETF (IEMG) , the second largest emerging market-related ETF, was the second most popular ETF play so far in 2019, attracting close to $2.5 billion in net inflows year-to-date, according to XTF data. The emerging market ETF play has increased 6.1% this year as more investors looked to cheaper global opportunities after the global pullback, with one investor executing a couple of massive block trades last week, which helped push assets up by $5 billion to an all-time high of $54.3 billion, according to Bloomberg data.

    3 Problems Could Pinch EM Bond ETFs in 2019

    Rising external financing costs and current account deficits are among the factors plaguing emerging markets debt this year, pressuring exchange traded funds such as the iShares J.P. Morgan USD Emerging Markets Bond ETF (EMB) and the PowerShares Emerging Markets Sovereign Debt Portfolio (PCY) along the way. Some analysts and market observers believe the scenarios confounding emerging markets bonds this year could linger into 2019. “The impact of tighter US monetary policy, a strengthening dollar, and risks to global trade and growth will continue to be felt in 2019,” said Fitch Ratings in a note out Monday.

    What’s Ailing Emerging Market Bond ETFs

    A strong dollar coupled with a spate of surprising interest rate hikes in some developing markets are among the factors punishing emerging markets debt this year, pressuring exchange traded funds such as the iShares J.P. Morgan USD Emerging Markets Bond ETF (EMB) and the PowerShares Emerging Markets Sovereign Debt Portfolio (PCY) in the process. The Federal Reserve began its current tightening cycle in 2015 and while the first few rate hikes did not pinch emerging markets debt all that much, that scenario is changing in a big way this year. With respect to value compared to price, many of these ETFs from abroad present a profitable opportunity that can be realized, especially if China and the U.S. eventually ameliorate their trade differences by year’s end.

    Currency Volatility Stings EM Bond ETFs

    The strong dollar and increased volatility for some emerging markets currencies are among the factors plaguing bonds issued by developing economies. The iShares J.P.

Beyond the short-term volatility associated with the trade fears, many are wary of the diverging monetary policies between emerging central banks and the Federal Reserve, which is expected to hike interest rates two more times this year.

    Bond ETF Investors Should Take a Second Look at Battered EM Debt

    The emerging markets have been pummeled this year, but after the selling, EM debt and bond-related ETFs appear attractive for their level of risk. "Given the state of the world with strong U.S. growth and contained inflation globally, it's hard to imagine that emerging markets would suffer so much this year," Pablo Goldberg, a senior fixed-income strategist with BlackRock, told CNBC. After the pullback in emerging assets, the spread of average EM bond yields over comparable duration U.S. Treasuries have significantly widened, with the average yield on the JP Morgan Emerging Markets Bond index up to 5% last week.
