Emerging Markets – An Introduction

Over the past generation or so, emerging markets, most notably the BRIC economies of Brazil, Russia, India, and China, have grown rapidly – growth that is projected to continue in the years to come as these markets strengthen their global positions and drive the world economy. China is already the world’s largest exporter and in 2010 overtook Japan as the world’s second largest economy after the United States.

 

Although astute investors can earn impressive returns on emerging market investments, this is not an area for the faint-hearted. Significant market volatility, frequent political crises, currency risk, and lack of regulatory oversight, are just some of the risks faced by investors in these markets.

 

This course outlines the development of emerging markets and how they differ from developed economies. The key emerging markets and the risks of investing in these markets are also discussed.
