Emerging economies

With expanding economies, emerging markets, such as India, China, and Brazil, are often considered on pace to become developed countries. These emerging economies are increasingly powerful forces driving global growth. In fact, they account for more than half of the world’s GDP.* Investors often look to emerging markets to diversify their portfolios—with exposure to different geographies and more potential growth opportunities than developed economies.
