From the Back Cover

Fisher Investments on Emerging Markets

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.

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.

Next, it thoroughly discusses 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 on Emerging Markets provides the framework that can help you to begin investing more globally.
