The Future of investment lies in the Emerging Markets. Emerging markets are nations that are in the process of rapid growth and development in respect to its social and business structures. The GDP (gross domestic product) of the countries, collectively known as, the BRIC (Brazil, Russia, India and China) has been sky rocketing and this growth is likely to contuine for a number of years.
"The term BRIC was first coined in a Goldman Sachs report back in 2003 and in this report it was believed that by 2050 these emerging market economies would be wealthier than most of the current economic superpowers."
The emerging markets are considered to be fast-growing economies and are in the process of moving from a closed economy to an open market. As an emerging market, a country is taking on an economic reform that will lead it to stronger economic performance levels. In a country with an emerging market presence there is typically an increase in both local and foreign investment, this, coupled with a stable local currency, means the country has been able to build confidence in its economy.
When the credit crisis hit the global economy back in 2008 the world markets were saved from complete and total disaster much in thanks to the emerging markets of the BRIC. The credit crisis was one of the worst felt in history and caused widespread economic recessions. However the crisis revealed the future of the emerging market economies as powerful and permanent contributors to global economic stability.
