Analyst Report

This ETF offers exposure to Russian equities, making it one of many options available for accessing a component of the BRIC bloc that holds tremendous potential but also significant risks. Russia's economy remains largely dependent on the energy sector, and as such ETFs such as ERUS can exhibit significant volatility. ERUS is probably too granular for long-term buy-and-holders, but can be useful for investors looking to implement a country rotation strategy or to tilt exposure towards this emerging market. ERUS is, perhaps not surprisingly, tilted heavily towards the energy sector, and has huge concentrations in a few individual companies. For those seeking more balanced exposure, RSX may be a better choice; that Van Eck ETF boasts better depth and diversification, along with a comparable expense ratio. Van Eck also offers RSXJ, a small cap Russia ETF that may be better able to provide pure play exposure to the local Russian economy (without the heavy energy tilt).
