Fisher Investments Reviews the Emerging Markets

Editorial Review from the Back Cover

Comprising 60 percent of the world's nearly seven billion people and almost a third of global output, emerging markets are fertile ground for the global investor. Yet for all their allure, many avoid emerging markets out of fear, ignorance, or a belief that they are radically different from developed world markets.

The sixth installment of the Fisher Investments On series is an all-encompassing guide to emerging markets. It skillfully demystifies investing in far-flung corners of the world and teaches you how to effectively analyze this segment of the investing landscape for yourself. Opening with an engaging overview of emerging markets, this book then provides historical perspective on the major emerging market regions—outlining the various social, economic, and political events that have shaped the investing landscape.

Fisher Investments reviews how you can identify and develop portfolio drivers and provides an introduction to security analysis. With this essential information in hand, the book then details several instruments and strategies available to investors.

You don't have to be a professional to successfully invest in emerging markets—but you do need to be prepared. Fisher Investments reviews and suggests a framework that can help you to begin investing more globally.
