Market Vectors Emerging Markets Local Currency Bond ETF (EMLC) Passes $1.5 Billion Mark

Market Vectors Emerging Markets Local Currency Bond ETF (NYSE Arca: EMLC), has surpassed $1.5 billion in assets under management (AUM), it was announced today. EMLC has seen an increase of more than $500 million in AUM in the last three months.

“Many local currency-denominated emerging market bonds are currently delivering more attractive yields than traditional fixed income investments, while at the same time offering currency and credit fundamentals that appear to be on more solid footing than fixed income investments denominated in U.S. Dollars, Euros or the Yen,” said Fran Rodilosso, fixed income portfolio manager at Market Vectors ETFs and one of two EMLC portfolio managers. “EMLC offers an excellent way to gain exposure to this space and the list of constituent countries in the Fund’s underlying index has been growing, with Romania and Nigeria having been recently added.”

Ed Lopez, Marketing Director for Market Vectors ETFs, added, “We’ve been extremely pleased with investor response to EMLC, which has produced strong returns while currently having a lower expense ratio than all other U.S. ETF covering the emerging market local currency debt space.”

When EMLC was brought to market in 2010, it was the first U.S.-listed exchange-traded fund designed to provide investors with exposure to an index that tracks a basket of bonds issued in local currencies by emerging market governments. The Fund seeks to replicate as closely as possible, before fees and expenses, the price and yield performance of J.P. Morgan GBI-EMG Core Index. As of March 1, 2013, the Index tracked a selection of bonds issued in local currencies by 16 emerging market countries: Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Hungary, Indonesia, Malaysia, Mexico, Nigeria, Peru, Philippines, Poland, Romania, Russia, South Africa, Thailand and Turkey.
