More of higher risk, higher return holding. It has a lot of weight in China (37% of the portfolio). Global growth will start to participate in the growth seen in industrial markets recently, he thinks. MER 0.24%. Yield 2.65%

(A Top Pick Apr 08/19, Up 2%) He's a long-term EM bull and VEE is his core EM holding. EM has had a middling year. This gives you great diversification around the world, including Korea, Turkey and Mexico and not just the usual suspects.

VEE vs. XID VEE covers EM. XID: India has a young working population who speak English. India fits well into global commerce. If they build their infrastructure, India will do well. Problem is, everyone knows India's long-term story and already have high expectations. India has been underperforming the past year, so he wants to see India cheaper and offer better performance before stepping in. Wait. Look at SCIF for India small-caps For EM, focus on Asian EMs, so go with GMF-N instead of VEE.

(A Top Pick Jul 23/19, Up 1%) Offers a broad exposure to emerging markets. It's a great way to play EM. The five-year chart is excellent. A good long-term buy.

VEE vs. VWO VEE is a past pick--it's the best emerging market ETF in Canada. Excellent at a 0.25% MER, covering India, which is a star performer in the emerging markets. VEE is in Canadian dollars vs. VWO whch trades in USD, so you can't put it in a TFSA. Both are good though.

It does not include Korea, whereas iShares' version includes it. Broadly speaking, emerging markets are still relatively cheap from a PE perspective, so he likes them from a relative value perspective but not from an absolute risk perspective because of expected global slowdown.

XID vs VEE (India vs. EM) VEE is Asia-ex Japan. It contains some major India stocks, plus Korea and China. With XID, you're making a country call. Do you know something about India that the world does not? He is not a country allocator. Take a look at Forstrong ETFs (https://www.forstrong.com/) which actively manage their funds, and you need that if you're so country-specific.

(A Top Pick Jul 23/19, Down 0.2%) US-China trade talks are pressuring this. He's a huge, huge long-term emerging markets bull: much higher GDP driven by a growing middle class. EM now makes up 20-25% of the world's markets, rising at an astonishing rate.

A good choice, especially because it's pretty good. How much exposure you want really depends. The US still remains the best performing market. He would allocate around 5-10%.

Emerging markets hold 85% of the world's population, 50% of GDP, but only 15% of market cap. So, the market cap doesn't reflect population. The long-term (5+ years) trend is very favourable for EM. There is growth potential here.

It's exposed beyond North American tech which has outpaced emerging markets recently, but over 20 years, EM has outperformed slightly. Every dog has its day, and this will. So, it's worth holding onto. Remember: EM represents only 8% of global market cap, but 49% of global GDP.

He owns 10% of this in his client portfolios. It's a great way to play EM, like XEC. This is basically Chinese large-caps; EMs will see future growth (not North American or western European stocks). But you have to stomach the volatility with VEE. Allocate 5-10% in emerging markets.

(A Top Pick Apr 08/19, Down 6%) He's long-term with EM (20 years) and he still likes this space. EM valautions are very low, yet there's strong GDP growth with an emerging middle class. VEE includes nearly 30 countries including China, India, Mexico and Hungary.

(A Top Pick May 25/18, Up 3%) He switched out of VEE to XEC because it was a better mix. He still likes emerging markets, because those stocks have better prices than Europe and North America.
