Investment Insights: Emerging Markets: A Source of Viable and Sustainable Investments
In 1981, during an investor conference in Thailand, IFC Deputy Director Antoine W. van Agtmael introduced a new phrase to his colleagues: emerging markets. Consequently, third-world countries began to take on a new hue, piquing the interest of investors and raising questions about the viability of investments in these markets.
Today, interest in emerging markets continues to gain traction among investors—and for good reason. As we’ve observed at Ellwood, emerging markets present many attractive and sustainable investment opportunities. Read our Investment Insights commentary to understand why we encourage our clients to consider these investments as part of their portfolios.
