3rd Emerging Markets Investing Summit: BRIC & Beyond

October 24, 2012 • New York, NY

iGlobal Forum is pleased to announce the 3rd Emerging Markets Investing Summit: BRIC & Beyond due to take place on Wednesday, October 24th, 2012 in New York City.  Building on the success of previous events, this year’s Summit provides a snapshot of the current climate for investing in emerging markets, and how investors should position their portfolios to maximize risk-adjusted returns.  Through a series of dynamic panel discussions, dialogues and debates, the forum will examine the cyclical, secular and political trends driving these markets and how they are likely to play out over the next few years. 

The Summit will address and discuss opportunities in the most promising emerging regions—from BRIC countries to frontier markets such as Turkey, Vietnam, Africa and Indonesia—and sectors such as healthcare, technology and infrastructure.  They will cover the full spectrum of access options including public & private equity, hedge funds, sovereign & corporate debt, local currency & dollar-denominated bonds, mutual funds and exchange-traded products.  The Summit will also analyze the inherent risks of investing in emerging markets—macroeconomic, geopolitical, legal, liquidity, transparency, currency, corruption, inflation—and how to prevent, hedge or diversify against these risks. 

The event will bring together some of the best minds in the emerging markets arena—leading institutional and private equity investors, hedge funds, portfolio and asset managers, economists and policymakers—to weigh in on these issues and present their best practice strategies.

Morris DeFeo is scheduled to speak on the topic of "Eyes Wide Open: Top Ten Risks of Investing in Emerging Markets."
