This ETF offers broad exposure to the emerging Latin American region with the heaviest holdings going to the nations of Brazil, Mexico, and Chile. Thanks to this focus on rapidly emerging nations which are sometimes forgotten by other emerging market ETFs, ILF could have some appeal to long-term investors with a buy-and-hold philosophy, but it is more likely to appeal to those looking to implement a tactical shift or capitalize on perceived mispricings over a relatively short time horizon. The main downside to this product is that although it is a 'broad' LM fund, it really only offers material holdings to four countries; the three aforementioned ones as well as a sub five percent holding in Peru. This suggests that the fund is really more of a concentrated bet than most might believe suggesting that investors need to be careful to make sure they are not doubling down on some of the largest components in the fund such as PetroBras, Vale, or Wal-Mart De Mexico. This is especially a problem in ILF as the fund only holds 35 securities in total and has close to two-thirds of its assets in its top ten holdings. So for investors looking for broad LM exposure that do not have any in their current portfolio, ILF could make for a solid choice but GML offers a slightly better investment profile making it the better pick in our opinion.
