“Capital outflows from emerging markets are on track to exceed inflows this year for the first time since 1988..
Investors are estimated to pull $540 billion from developing markets in 2015, according to the Institute of International Finance based on data for 30 nations.”
What are emerging markets?
According to T.Rowe Price:
“Emerging markets are developing economies, many of which are experiencing rapid growth and industrialization. These countries possess securities markets that are progressing toward, but have not yet reached, the standards of developed nations.
While there is no definitive classification system, investors generally consider much of Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe, Latin America, and the Middle East to be emerging markets. Four of the most prominent are the fast-growing “BRIC” economies: Brazil, Russia, India, and China.”
