This chapter outlines the characteristics of investing in emerging and developing markets. It first clarifies the different definitions and interpretations of emerging markets and then provides a mean-variance analysis of emerging market investment and offers evidence on the recent performance of emerging markets. Next, the chapter details the main risks and problems associated with investing in emerging markets under the headings of liquidity, information asymmetry, corporate governance, and market efficiency. It further reviews the literature on the factors that influence country and stock selection. Having reviewed the benefits and risks from direct investment in emerging markets, the chapter closes by detailing the benefits and risks from indirect investment in emerging markets using domestic assets that represent claims on foreign assets.

Keywords:   emerging markets, portfolio investment, direct and indirect investment vehicles
