Emerging Markets investments – keep track of the changes affecting your portfolio

Exchange Data International strengthens its coverage of Emerging and Frontier Markets.

London, Septembre 17th 2010, Ten years ago investing in Emerging Markets was considered very risky but today it is seen as critical to obtaining positive investment returns. Compared to other investments, emerging markets equities have the potential to provide more attractive returns and a better risk/reward ratio. Investing into this sector can help diversify risk and strengthen your overall portfolio return.

However, emerging market securities still represent a certain risk – lack of transparency, lack of liquidity and social & political issues – so tracking corporate actions is crucial when investing into this sector.
