Tim Holland, CFA, Senior Vice President, Global Investment Strategist
On this week’s podcast (recorded July 28, 2017), Tim takes a closer look at Emerging Markets and why we own them.
- After under-performing U.S. and developed international equities for several years, Emerging Market equities are outdistancing both asset classes since the beginning of 2016.
- The four largest emerging markets on an adjusted GDP basis are Brazil, Russia, India and China, often referred to as the “BRIC Countries.
- While there are many positives to investing in emerging markets, there are also meaningful risks including political instability, infrastructure problems and currency volatility.
- Considering the cyclical and secular tailwinds, we are overweight emerging market equities and remain constructive on the asset class.
