Be aware of the risks, not just the opportunities, within emerging markets
Chicago, IL (PRWEB) April 19, 2012
A successful test by India of a nuclear capable missile able to strike China is a new risk factor that India ETF investors must take into account writes Christian Magoon in an article titled "New India ETF Risk Emerges." The test occurred on Thursday and according to the Wall Street Journal the missile had enough range to deliver a strike to Chinese cities like Beijing and Shanghai. While emerging markets like India and China have been stable over the last 10 years, this event highlights the elevated geopolitical risk factors to consider when investing in emerging markets.
"India ETF products offer a compelling long term growth opportunity," said Christian Magoon, Publisher of IndiaETFs.com and CEO of Magoon Capital. "However it is important to understand that there are unique risks which emerging markets like India and China are subject to. India's missile test, and some would say message to China, is an abrupt reminder of the elevated risks emerging market investors must consider."
