This article is part of the Morningstar's Guide to Emerging Market Investing. Click here to find out just what an emerging market is and which hold the potential to grow exponentially - boosting your investment portfolio.

Emerging market investment can be a risky business. For those with the appetite for volatility – and a long-term investment horizon – emerging markets can bear fruit, helping boost your portfolio into double digit returns.

But what if you don’t have the aptitude to stomach losses, or your investment horizon is short and your goals set in stone? For many investors approaching retirement, or those using the stock market to attain a certain savings goal, it is advisable to stick to assets with a lower volatility profile. In these cases emerging market equities may not be suitable. However this doesn’t mean you have to miss out on all the upside emerging economies can add to your portfolio.
