has showered a significant amount of love to three diversified emerging-markets funds.
And that's a big deal because young EM funds usually need to prove themselves a lot.
Senior fund analyst writes this on the subject:
Most of the young diversified emerging-markets funds can safely be ignored at this point for one reason or another. Their track records are short, and often their managers and strategies haven't already established their emerging-markets bona fides on other offerings. Several of the new offerings that do have proven managers and strategies have really high expense ratios.
That's why his praise to the Columbia Acorn Emerging Markets (CAGAX), the Seafarer Overseas Growth & Income (SFGIX), and the Thomas White Emerging Markets(TWEMX) funds are so significant.
Rocco writes that the funds "have several factors in their favor and are worth checking out despite their youth."
