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 regions hold the potential to boost your investment portfolio. 

Are you a cautious investor? Don’t have the aptitude to stomach losses, your investment horizon is short or your goals set in stone? Emerging market equities are probably not the best fit for your portfolio.

But this does not mean you have to miss out on the growth prospects the region offers those with a higher risk threshold. More than 70% of the revenues of FTSE 100 companies come from outside of the UK. That means that cash coming into the company is sourced from other developed markets – and for an increasing number of stocks, emerging markets too.
