Analyst Report

This ETF offers exposure to the BRIC economies of Brazil, Russia, India, and China, and might be appealing for investors looking to tilt emerging markets exposure towards these economies and away from "quasi-developed" markets that can make up significant portions of more broad-based emerging markets ETFs. BKF is the most popular BRIC ETF, but investors should take note that the fund is tilted towards China and Brazil with smaller allocations to the other members of the bloc.
