This ETF delivers exposure to emerging markets equities, and as such has the potential to be included as a core component of a long-term buy and hold portfolio or as a way to tilt exposure more heavily towards developing economies. GMM isn't nearly as popular as other EM options such as VWO or EEM, but there is a lot to like about this SPDR. GMM is very well balanced, with close to 600 individual holdings and relatively small concentrations in any one stock. This ETF also maintains bigger allocations to mid caps and small caps than those linked to the MSCI Emerging Markets Index, and makes significantly smaller allocations to "quasi-developed" countries such as South Korea and Taiwan. That may make this ETF more appealing for investors seeking to tilt exposure more heavily towards the BRIC economies and smaller emerging markets around the globe. If you're in the market for EM exposure, GMM might be worth a closer look; the unique profile may be more appealing than some of the other options out there.
The adjacent table gives investors an individual Realtime Rating for GMM on several different metrics, including liquidity, expenses, performance, volatility, dividend, concentration of holdings in addition to an overall rating.
