Emerging markets by their very nature are highly volatile, but for the informed investor it is possible to make a killing without losing your shirt.
Many factors should be considered before risking your hard earned cash in any emerging market including: political stability, economic realities, cultural, geopolitical, and demographic changes and many other relevant factors.
As the author of this blog I will show my interest in investment by presenting the insights of my on-going research, along with observations of other eminent commentators. You are invited to join the discussion in this fascinating area and your comments on this blog are most welcome.
I hold a Bachelor’s degree in Information Security awarded by the Moscow State Humanitarian University, and a postgraduate diploma in Accounting and Audit.
After 14 exciting years of my career in the marketing department of an international Germany-based FMCG company, I moved to the Isle of Man in 2010 to study for a Master’s degree in International Banking & Finance at the Isle of Man International Business School. The core of this course was investment, portfolio management, risk management, and capital markets.
In my dissertation I analysed the volatility of emerging markets (BRICS) versus the more mature markets of the UK & US. For this I used advanced econometric modelling techniques (ARCH, GARCH) to gain a more holistic view of the stock market by capturing elements and market forces not normally seen with fundamental and technical analytical methods. This work was a great experience and I learned lots of useful techniques to analyse markets. Having completed my dissertation I was awarded my Master’s in February 2012.
I continue to research and write on the subject of the dynamics emerging markets and the opportunities available to investors looking for high returns whilst minimising risk.
