Introduction to Emerging Markets

Introduction to Emerging Markets

Emerging Markets funds aim to provide investors with diversified exposure to emerging parts of the world, such as China, India and Latin America. Some have a regional or country-specific focus, others have a more global remit. These parts of the world will often exhibit high growth rates, but may also be subject to higher risks, such as political instability or corruption.

Companies operating in these markets will often be at an earlier stage of growth, which means that share prices exhibit higher volatility, but can also deliver stronger returns. These markets tend to do well in a climate of expanding global economic growth, but will suffer when investor confidence weakens.

Active investment managers in this sector take a variety of approaches: some will look at the macro-economic environment around the globe and prioritise those companies that are operating in those regions with the highest GDP growth. Others may take a thematic approach, prioritising dividend and/or bond income, for example. Others may look for high quality companies that can grow their earnings in all types of market environment and mitigate many of the risks that can be present in emerging markets.

The tax treatment of investments is subject to tax law and HMRC practice which are subject to change. The value of investments may be affected by exchange rate movements where the underlying investments are not denominated in Pounds Sterling.
