The worst-performing markets over the past year reads like a list of investors’ favourite emerging markets—funds investing in Brazil, India and Russia have lost between 15% and 30% on average and those focused solely on Turkey top the list with an average category drop of 41%. Even those more diversified funds that invest across the emerging market world have shed an average 13% over the past 12 months, as measured by Morningstar’s Global Emerging Markets Equity category performance. Such dire performances have once again raised questions as to the legitimacy of emerging-market investments, while other commentators are betting on these markets as potential rebound stories.
