Question: Where can I find financial and economic information on emerging market countries and companies?
Countries and companies in those countries 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.
