Investing in emerging economies is rarely for the faint-hearted – while gains tend to be amplified relative to developed world equities, losses are too – and a long-term horizon is very much recommended.

And 2018 was a tough one for emerging market investors, with the MSCI EM Index declining 14.52%, just shy of 2015’s 14.92% and its third year of double-digit losses since 2009. By comparison, MSCI World lost less than 9%. Emerging market debt suffered, too.
