Vanguard FTSE Emerging Markets ETF is one of the largest ETFs in the world, having been embraced by investors as an efficient way to establish exposure to emerging markets. VWO provides an opportunity to establish broad-based exposure to the developing economies of the world by investing in stocks of companies located in emerging markets, such as China, Brazil, Taiwan, and South Africa. VWO has a broad portfolio and rock-bottom expense ratio that should help it perform well over the long haul. The goal is to closely track the return of the FTSE Emerging Markets All Cap China A Inclusion Index.

  • VWO has high potential for growth, but also high risk.

  • Its share value may swing up and down more than that of stock funds that invest in developed countries, including the United States.
