It’s time to run a ruler over Fidelity Global Emerging Markets Fund (Managed Fund) ETF (ASX: FEMX) and Vaneck Small Companies Masters ETF (ASX: MVS). The ETFs invest in the International shares and Australian shares sectors/industries, respectively.
The Fidelity FEMX ETF (ASX:FEMX)
The Fidelity FEMX Fund provides investors with exposure to the performance of emerging market companies. The Fidelity Global Emerging Markets Fund is a managed fund that has been operating since 2013. It listed on the ASX in October 2018, making it easier for investors to enter and exit the fund.
According to our most recent data, the FEMX ETF had $166.36 million of money invested. With FEMX’s total funds under management (FUM) figure over $100 million, the ETF meets our team’s minimum investment criteria for FUM levels. As a general rule, our team draws the line at $100 million for ETFs in the International shares sector because we believe that, relative to smaller ETFs, achieving this amount of FUM lowers the chance that the ETF issuer will close the ETF.

Vaneck MVS ETF (ASX:MVS)
The VanEck MVS ETF provides exposure to a diversified portfolio of Australian small caps, with a focus on highly liquid, dividend-paying companies. This ETF tracks the MVIS Australia Small-Cap Dividend Payers Index.
With our numbers for Dec 2020, MVS’s FUM stood at $83.45 million. Given it has less than $100 million invested, ask yourself (or your adviser) if the ETF is still too small (and if you should wait to buy into it). If you’re concerned the ETF might not be established enough, compare it alongside one of the other Yield/income sector ETFs, using our full list of ETFs.
Are the fees for the MVS ETF bad?
Vaneck, the ETF issuer, charges a yearly management fee of 0.49% for the MVS ETF. Meaning, if you invested $2,000 for a full 12-month period you could expect to pay a base management fee of around $9.80.
This management fee is below the average for all ETFs on our Best ETFs Australia list of ETFs. However, you might still be able to find a cheaper ETF for less.
