In last week’s podcast, I questioned if the Eurozone had the next big investment opportunities. In the near term…not really.
So the next natural place to look is in Emerging Markets. In particular, the BRICs: Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa.
Are these countries living up to the pomp and circumstance that started in 2001 by Goldman Sachs analyst Jim O’Neill? Or, is “BRICS” turning out to be just a catchy acronym that lost popularity to the next shiny new investment idea on the scene?
Can we talk?
