Due Diligence Forum summary

This presentation and underlying research paper examine the case for investing in emerging market equities from the perspective of an Australian investor. They argue that emerging markets should be viewed as a relatively risky equity sub-class that justifies its position in portfolios as a source of additional returns, rather than as a diversification opportunity. Investors can expect to be adequately compensated for these risks through both risk premiums and alpha generated by active managers.
