Why Emerging Markets are Exceptionally Attractive
About This Episode
One of the best kept secrets in the investment world is the long-term outperformance of emerging markets. Over the last 20 years, the MSCI Emerging Markets Investable Index outperformed the S&P 500 Index – 7.2% versus 6.6%. That index also outperformed the S&P 500 in 2020, 18.8% versus 18.4%. Despite that outperformance, emerging markets are cheap, trading at a 14.8 p/e versus 21.6 for the S&P 500. Here today to discuss the potential that the emerging markets holds for investors is Chelsea Rodstrom of Global X.
