"By investing in the developing economic powerhouses of the 21st century, emerging markets can offer the potential for long-term returns."
James Caldwell, Director
Emerging markets or emerging economies are those which are currently going a period of rapid industialisation and growth, coupled with an upsurge in business activity. The seven largest emerging economies by GDP are China, Brazil, Russia, India, Mexico, Indonesia, and Turkey. However, many other markets can also classified as emerging - for example, investments in African economies are becoming more widespread, too.
Because they are growing and changing rapidly, emerging markets can seem like an attractive prospect to investors who are looking for long-term growth, as these markets are predicted to be major economic players later on in the 21st century.

Important Information: Investment in emerging market funds involves risk factors and special considerations which may not be typically associated with investing in more developed markets. Political or economic change and instability may be more likely to occur and have a greater effect on the economies and markets of emerging countries. Adverse government policies, taxation, restrictions on foreign investment and on currency convertibility and repatriation, currency fluctuations and other developments in the laws and regulations of emerging countries in which investment may be made, including expropriation, nationalisation or other confiscation could result in loss to the fund.
