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.

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 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.
