Emerging EMEA: an emerging market region you can't afford to miss

February 2021 - 3 min read

Matthias Siller, Head of EMEA at Barings, explores why the emerging markets of Eastern Europe, the Middle East and Africa deserve greater investor attention.

Look inside the average emerging markets investment portfolio and - chances are - it's heavily weighted towards one region: Asia. The region's recent performance has, of course, been dominated by China. Its position as a global powerhouse that's set to overtake the US as the world's largest economy by 2030 has made China an essential component in any emerging market strategy. But being overexposed to any one market or region has its risks. It can also mean missing out on potential elsewhere.

A region that emerging market investors can often overlook is Emerging EMEA – the developing markets across Eastern Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
