Five Charts That Explain the Case for Emerging Markets

November 2018

Many investors struggle to find the right place for it in their portfolios, but emerging markets present potentially significant opportunities.

For those investors unfamiliar with emerging markets, it’s important to understand some key facts about risks and rewards, as well as their importance in the world economy. These investors have ignored some of the world’s best-performing financial markets since the turn of the millennium.

Investors generally understand the importance of emerging markets in terms of their economic impact but, perhaps due to lack of knowledge, often struggle to know how best to reflect this in their portfolios.

Important Risks: Investing involves risk, including the possible loss of principal. • Foreign investments may be more volatile and less liquid than U.S. investments and are subject to the risk of currency fluctuations and adverse political and economic developments. These risks may be greater for investments in emerging markets.
