The Changing Landscape in EM Equity

September 30, 2020 | David Hernandez, CFA, Senior Research Analyst, Non-U.S. Equities

Over the last ten years, the landscape for emerging market equities (EM) has changed. In the first decade of the century, BRIC investing was popular with an emphasis on materials and energy. Since then, the benchmark exposure to Brazil and Russia has halved, sector exposures have changed, and many new companies have entered the index. The number of stocks in the benchmark has nearly doubled, moving from 754 in 2010 to 1,385 in 2020.

This newsletter will review some of the most significant changes to the EM investing arena and what that means for client portfolios.
