IShares MSCI Emerging Markets Multifactor ETF EMGF has an attractive combination of characteristics that indicate it should perform well against its MSCI Emerging Markets Index Morningstar Category benchmark over the long haul. But the strength of its factor exposures may change over time, and their influence on the fund's performance may be dwarfed by stock selection, which adds a layer of unpredictability to its performance. These considerations warrant a downgrade of its Process Pillar rating to Below Average from Average, but it retains its Morningstar Analyst Rating of Neutral.
