Description of Emerging Markets. Explanation.




Definition Emerging Markets. Description.

Emerging Markets refers to the countries or regions that have begun to industrialize and adopted Market Capitalism and are showing great promise as a good place to invest. They offer the potential for a high return in a relatively short period of time. The main attractiveness of these regions is often caused by the preparedness of employees to work long hours for low wages initially. Their economy is in a transitional phase between a developing and developed (mature) status.

On the other side, these regions involve greater volatility and higher risk than established markets. Also, they are often subject to unexpected political and economic upheavals. As a result, the value of stocks, Bonds, and currencies can change drastically and suddenly.

Many Latin American, Eastern European and Asian countries such as China, India, South Korea, Brazil, Malaysia, Poland, Russia are considered emerging markets. These regions can benefit greatly from their emergent market status through receiving a variety of international financial aid programs to further boost their economies. These programs include loans and other financial assistance from the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank and special trading status with reduced tariffs for their exports to more advanced countries.

With the help from investors and the financial institutions as described above, Emerging Markets can quickly develop higher per capita GDP, more exports, increased foreign investment, better standards of living, and more stable political structures, which is in turn beneficial for the economies of all other countries in the world.
