Emerging markets

Emerging market funds provides long-term capital growth by investing in the financial markets of developing countries. Whether you're seeking an investment in a specific emerging market region like Latin America or the Far East, or would like to spread your investment across developing regions, there are many emerging market funds out there to suit your needs.

Choosing the right emerging market fund can be a confusing and time consuming decision, and while the returns are often more enticing and potentially far more rewarding, emerging markets do carry a far greater risk. It is vitally important you shop around and seek professional advice before considering any investment in emerging markets.
