Emerging Market Small Cap ETF List

A list of emerging market small cap ETFs managed by fund managers such as EG Shares, First Trust, Guggenheim, iShares, State Street SPDR, Van Eck and WisdomTree give investors exposure to small cap emerging market stocks. However, investors need to keep in mind that small cap emerging market stocks tend to be less liquid and have less transparency than their emerging market large cap peers which would also be more likely to have ADR or GDR listings on foreign stock exchanges. In addition, investors interested in emerging market small cap ETFs should also check out our mid cap ETF list and large cap ETF list pages plus many of the ETFs on our emerging market ETF list (diversified sector or market cap) may contain a few small cap emerging market stocks mixed in with less risky mid cap and large cap stocks.
