This ETF offers exposure to a host of emerging Asian economies, making GMF a potentially intriguing option for those investors looking to tilt exposure towards this corner of the market. China accounts for a big portion of this ETF, but a handful of other economies--including India, Malaysia, Thailand, and the Philippines--are represented as well. That gives a nice balance in terms of geographic exposure, and provides a way to access stocks that may thrive if Asia in general continues to see its economic importance increase. Unlike many country-specific or region-specific funds, GMF does a nice job of spreading exposure across individual securities; with weights given to more than 250 different stocks, this ETF earns high marks for diversification. Large and mega caps get heavy weights in this ETF, a common bias among international equity funds. GMF can be a nice tool to fine tune international exposure, as the impressive breadth of holdings give well-rounded exposure to emerging economies in Asia. Those seeking to access emerging market more generally (including South America and other regions) may find VWO or EWX to be better fits.
