What is Opportunity for Capital investment in an Emerging Market?
Rapid growth in industry sectors requires capital investment. Generally, emerging economies have less-mature capital markets than the developed countries. Their stock markets are risky; but, higher risk often entails higher rewards.
Investing in emerging market companies requires research and access the right information. Venture capital and private equity investments in emerging markets is continually on the rise.
