FACTBOX-U.S. investors lag other regions in emerging markets allocation

    July 11 (Reuters) - U.S. investors devote a smaller chunk of
funds to emerging markets' stocks than do their counterparts in
other regions, including many developed nations, data from
research firm eVestment shows. This reflects fears of volatility
and what fund managers have called a lingering 'home bias'
influencing allocation decisions.
