Despite concerns about slowing growth and potential volatility, emerging markets are promising this year for investors who stay focused on high-quality, well-valued companies spanning the capitalization spectrum, Invesco says.


“As we enter 2012, the MSCI Emerging Market Index has recently lagged other indexes (declining roughly 18% over the past 12 months), providing what we believe to be a compelling investment opportunity,” writes Invesco’s Ingrid Baker for Advisor Perspectives.


Emerging markets offer opportunities for growth, higher returns and diversification benefits, she says, based on favorable demographic trends, growth prospects and valuations.
