Emerging Global Shares, or EG Shares, ETFs track the performance of a variety of emerging markets indexes, including the Dow Jones Emerging Market Consumer Index, the Indxx Low Volatility Emerging Markets Dividend Index and the Dow Jones Emerging Markets Technology Titans Index. Emerging markets are economies that are exhibiting rapid growth and industrialization, including the BRIC nations: Brazil, Russia, India and China; and the MIST nations: Mexico, Indonesia, South Korea and Turkey. Investing in emerging markets carries inherent risks because these markets are not fully developed. Risks, including lack of transparency, undeveloped regulatory systems, liquidity issues and volatility can affect the performance of investments. Many investors, however, find emerging markets attractive due to the potential for high returns since they frequently experience rapid economic growth as measured by GDP.

There are currently 22 EG Shares ETFs, with Emerging Global Advisors (EGA) acting as an advisor for the funds. Headquartered in New York City, NY, EGA is an asset management company that specializes in emerging markets exposure. The EG Shares Emerging Markets Energy Fund (ARCA:OGEM) and the EG Shares Emerging markets Metals & Mining Fund (ARCA:EMT) were the first funds introduced by EGA in 2009. EG Shares funds have expense ratios ranging from 0.70 to 0.89%, with an average expense ratio of 0.84%.
