Question: Where can I find stock prices and returns for companies and markets in emerging market countries?

Answer


Companies can be categorized as being in developed, emerging or frontier markets. Generally, emerging market countries offer higher return with higher risk relative to developed market countries and are usually considered more stable than frontier markets. Emerging market countries are identified by market index providers and are defined by various characteristics.

Index provider MSCI provides the following list of emerging market countries, www.msci.com/emerging-markets
