Investing in Emerging Markets: Outlook for 2012

Thursday, January 26, 2012 | 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM

At a time of projected slower or negative GDP growth by developed countries, investors are looking even more to emerging public and private markets to deliver investment return. Are they right?

Join the Museum of American Finance and the Private Equity Committee of the Columbia Business School Alumni Club for a discussion of emerging markets investment performance in 2012. This panel will discuss these questions and others:

Which regions or sectors will outperform?

Will private, frontier, or smaller/non-index countries provide return uncorrelated with S & P , MSCI, or other Indexed markets?

What assumptions about Europe resolution are emerging market investors making?

Will China’s economy in 2012 continue to power global growth, especially in emerging markets?
