From FactSet, I aggregate across all stock holdings and all institutions in each country in which those are deployed outside their country of domicile. Call these foreign equity holdings. I sort these by target country, and then aggregate across all source countries the foreign equity holdings that target the given emerging market country of interest.

The cup is 20% full and 80% empty. I focus on the cup 20% full, and take it as a good sign of the integrity of the risk indicators. You have every right to ask what is missing to leave 80% unexplained.

China is clearly an influential observation that impedes the predictive power of the risk indicator scores (helping the cup to be 80% empty, to torture the earlier metaphor a bit more).
