Asia Offers Regional Emerging Market Opportunity


Six of the 10 most populated countries in the world are in Asia, and the continent holds more than half of the world’s population. The second- and third-largest economies in the world, as measured by Gross Domestic Product (GDP), also are in Asia. The mix of frontier, emerging and developed economies in Asia creates a geographic region with an enticing combination of raw materials, markets to sell goods and both cheap and skilled labor. Exchange-traded funds (ETFs) that you can use to invest in Asia include: iShares Asia / Pacific Dividend 30 Index Fund (DVYA), SPDR S&P Emerging Asia Pacific ETF (GMF), SPDR S&P Small Cap Emerging Asia Pacific ETF (GMFS) and FTSE ASEAN 40 ETF (ASEA).

This set of funds is tied to a region that offers big economic potential. The funds also are among a wide variety of country-specific and Asia-area offerings.
