Analyst Report

This fund offers broad exposure to continent of Africa, focusing in one numerous emerging markets in the region. AFK is heavily weighted towards the continent's largest economies with South Africa, Egypt, and Nigeria dominating the top holdings. The focus is large and mid caps but since many ETFs focus in on other regions of the world, it is likely that investors have little in terms of African exposure in their portfolios. AFK may be appropriate for investors seeking more exposure to the Southeast Asia region as most ETFs offer little in terms of investment in the area.
