NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- A couple of weeks ago in an article about low volatility ETFs I made the obvious observation that there will be more of these funds that target the less volatile components of various broad stock market indices. No sooner did the virtual ink dry when iShares rolled out a suite of four such funds including the iShares MSCI Emerging Markets Minimum Volatility Index Fund (EEMV).The simple way to think of EEMV is that it is a low-volatility version of the iShares MSCI Emerging Market Index Fund (EEM), technically however EEMV screens the entire MSCI universe of emerging market stocks for the ones with the lowest volatility.
