POSITIVES AND RISKS
Total return ranks well below peers over the last three years. The Voya Emerging Markets High Div Eqty has returned an annual rate of -9.91% since inception. More recently, the fund has generated a total return of -12.70% in the last three years, -19.05% in the last year, and -18.44% in the last six months. How does that compare to other equity funds? In the last three years, it has outperformed 14% of them. It has also outpaced 14% of its competitors on a one year basis for the period ending 12/31/2015. On a year to date basis, IHD has returned -19.05%.
Downside risk has been above average. IHD has a draw down risk of -51.09%, which is the largest price decline experienced over the last three years. This fund has a three year standard deviation of 18.1%. This fund has experienced a high level of volatility in its monthly performance over the last 36 months.

High expense ratio hinders performance. On total assets of $226.15 million, IHD maintains a high expense ratio compared to its Emerging Market Equity peers of 1.42% to cover all operating costs. Brokerage costs for the fund to buy and sell shares are not included in the expense ratio. As IHD is a closed end fund, it has no front end or back end load.
Manager lacks tenure and performance record lags managerial peers. Substandard fund managers tend to be replaced, so a long tenure is usually a good sign that a fund is achieving its objectives. The Voya Emerging Markets High Div Eqty has been managed by Manu Vandenbulck for only 5 years. Over that period, the manager was able to capture more actual gains in excess of the expected return than just 33% of other fund managers.
