Emerging markets are one of the fastest growing--yet least understood--segments of today's investing world. Comprising 25 countries, 35% of the world's landmass, and a whopping 60% of the world's nearly seven billion people, the importance of emerging markets for the global economy can scarcely be understated. From Fisher Investments on Emerging Markets, investors will gain a broad understanding of the asset class and leave with a detailed road-map for investment success in this budding investment universe. The book begins with an overview of emerging markets, followed by a historical narrative of the major emerging market regions, with emphasis on the social, economic, and political forces that have shaped the investing landscape. It also establishes a must-have manual for successfully investing in emerging markets. Key considerations are the investment landscape in these regions. For instance, the vast majority of technology companies are located in Asia, while most materials companies are in Europe and Latin America. This book serves as the "lay of the land" for aspiring emerging markets investors. It also covers beneficial advice for stock selection and includes a discussion on common pitfalls and how to avoid them.
