Evaluating the impact of ETFs on emerging markets

The growth of ETF investments has coincided with the growing sensitivity of emerging market capital flows to global financial shocks. To date, the majority of studies on the subject have focused on the importance of ETFs relative to competitive instruments (e.g. mutual funds). However, only a few have examined the correlation between emerging market ETF flows and global financial shocks. We review a study that examines the role of ETFs in transmitting global financial conditions to emerging market economies.


In this Literature Review, we discuss a 2023 research paper titled “How ETFs Amplify the Global Financial Cycle in Emerging Markets”, co-authored by Nathan Converse, Eduardo Levy-Yeyati and Tomas Williams. The paper was published by Oxford Academic.
