Investors Pour Money Into Emerging Market ETF That Avoids China

  • EMXC poised for record inflow amid China regulatory crackdown
  • ETF buys stocks throughout emerging markets, except China

Investors who love emerging markets but are spooked by China’s regulatory crackdown are pouring more money than ever into an ETF seemingly tailor-made for this moment.

The $1.2 billion iShares MSCI Emerging Markets ex-China ETF, an exchange-traded fund that tracks stocks in developing countries except China, has attracted $304.8 million of fresh investment in August. That’s put the fund on course for the biggest monthly inflow since its inception four years ago, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.
