Compare Emerging Market Funds

Emerging markets typically have less debt than developed world countries and combined with improving stable and prudent government fiscal and monetary policies, investors should consider the investment growth potential these changes can bring.


There is a wide range of emerging market funds available. Global emerging market funds will provide you with exposure to the long term growth potential of the world's emerging economies providing diversification through a portfolio of companies from different countries and different industry sectors around the world.


Asian Emerging market funds will tend to focus on Asia's newer faster growing markets such as China, India and Malaysia but also may provide access to up and coming companies in smaller markets such as Vietnam and Sri Lanka. These funds are suitable for investors who believe Asia has significant growth potential in the long term and are prepared to accept a higher level of investment risk.


For investors who wish to focus on the emerging economies of Brazil, Russia, China and India BRIC emerging market funds provide growth opportunities from these emerging powerhouse economies. For investors who are happy to take on greater investment risk by investing in one country then over the last few years a number of well known fund houses have launched funds to tap into the growth potential of China and India. See our China emerging market funds section for more information.
