“Patience is the mother of science,” says a proverb, and it obviously plays a very important role in the world of investing. It is important to know when, how and where to invest so that you do not later regret a decision you have already made.
Investing in emerging markets also requires patience. An example of this is India, whose GDP has not stopped growing over the years. India was the sixth largest nominal GDP in the world as of September 2021 and the fastest growing market in Asia alongside Japan. The Asian market continues to establish itself not only among Asia’s major booming economies, but also as an investment alternative in diversified portfolios.
In fact, 75% of institutional investors are likely to increase exposure to these emerging markets over the next two years, according to data from a global survey by Vontobel.
