Top Emerging ETF Trend: Pro

One exchange-traded fund provides investors access to consumers in emerging market, WisdomTree Chief Investment Strategist Luciano Siracusano said Tuesday.

"We're in an environment this year, year to date, where the small caps in emerging markets are outperforming the large caps in emerging markets by about 700 basis points," he said, adding that the same wasn't true in the United States or internationally.

"But something is happening in emerging markets. It's a trend we've seen over the last three, five and 10 years, so I think it's definitely an asset class investors should be looking at."

On CNBC's "Fast Money," Siracusano pointed out how a small-cap ETF, such as the WisdomTree Emerging Market Small-Cap Dividend ETF, could provide outsize gains.

"The large caps are tied to the global economy, particularly what's happening in Europe and of course what's happening in China," he said. "I think the small caps have more exposure to what's going on on ground in their countries, and those countries are still growing."

Siracusano noted that global GDP estimates for 2013 were higher that actual GDP for 2012.

"Investors want to get closer to the emerging consumer, I think emerging small caps give them that option and make them less vulnerable to slowdowns in the global GDP," he said.
