Emerging markets are home to 70% of the world’s population, half of its land mass and 40% of its economic output. They include behemoths such as India, Taiwan and China, as well as fast-growing minnows such as Chile, Malaysia or South Africa.

These economies are rich in innovation. From fintech in India, to green energy in China, to copper mining in Chile, emerging market companies are often global leaders in their field and bring a diverse range of opportunities for investors.

Successfully navigating this vast universe requires a breadth of expertise, with research analysts on the ground, steeped in local expertise. Fidelity Emerging Markets Limited (FEML) draws on Fidelity’s research resources across the globe to build a carefully curated portfolio of companies with a strong runway of growth.

High quality emerging market companies should deliver strong and sustainable investment returns over the long term, but it is vital to keep an eye on potential risks. These are markets that may be more volatile and valuations can move to extreme levels in both directions. We strive to ensure our investors can profit from emerging markets’ growth, without experiencing every bump in the road.

In this broadcast Chris Tennant spoke to Citywire’s Gavin Lumsden about why Fidelity’s EM ‘go-anywhere’ approach to the developing world is finding growth opportunities.
