Analyst Report

The iShares MSCI Argentina and Global Exposure ETF (AGT) is one of only two ETFs that exclusively target Argentine equities. The fund tracks an MSCI index of the largest and most-liquid companies. The portfolio includes a couple dozen stocks of companies that are either based in Argentina, listed on local markets or get at least 10% of their revenue from the country. The stocks are market-cap weighted, adjusted for free float, and no single stock can exceed 25% of the portfolio, and all companies weighted at more than 5% can’t exceed 50% combined.

AGT charges a relatively steep management fee for a passive fund, but investors for fast and easy exposure to Argentina via a U.S.-listed fund shouldn’t be deterred by a few extra basis points in fees. It is very slightly cheaper than its only rival, the Global X MSCI Argentina ETF (ARGT), which tracks the same index and has a substantially similar portfolio. ARGT is the older of the two funds, and a bit larger owing to first-mover advantage.

As with many country-specific funds, especially in emerging and frontier markets, liquidity can be a challenge, especially for institutional investors looking to place large block orders.

Investors looking for broad exposure to emerging markets can find cheaper one-stop-funds like the Vanguard FTSE Emerging Markets ETF (VWO), and those seeking frontier markets exposure might consider the iShares MSCI Frontier 100 ETF (FM), which isn’t as cheap as VWO but comes with a lower management fee than AGT.
