Conrad de Aenlle’s Funds For Thought: Indexing is no match for active managers in this emerging market

Emerging stock markets are a forgotten asset class. Trading in them has been flat to slightly higher since the recovery from the financial crisis began nearly eight years ago, a period during which U.S. stocks have more than tripled. When emerging markets have captured attention, it has often been for extreme trading volatility, as in China, or extreme corruption, as in Brazil.

India, meanwhile, continues quietly on its path to prosperity. The International Monetary Fund projects inflation-adjusted economic output to grow by 7.6% in 2017, a higher rate than for any country that is not recovering from a war, and well above the 2.2% growth rate projected for the United States.
