I think it is a great ETF that you should not buy on another platform like EasyEquities or ABSA ETF Only. Couple it with NFEMOM and you have a close to complete portfolio albeit very very little control over weightings and that is both good and bad.

You can get more info about the index here: http://us.spindices.com/indices/equity/sp-global-1200

The performance will be that and the USD/ZAR exchange rate factored in. So if Zuma resigns it'll probably "tank" so maybe wait a day or two (if we're lucky).

Personally, I prefer a STXWDM and STXEMG combination over it purely because I can control the emerging market exposure better.
