Emerging Markets: Recent Developments, Challenges and Future Prospects begins by examining the compelling diversification benefits of investing in emerging markets. Given these markets’ risk-adjusted performance over the past ten years, those who invested funds in them have been kindly rewarded, despite a few temporary performance setbacks and the persisting broad macroeconomic instability troubling the weakest of the markets. Next, the authors present an analysis of the spread of private equity and its subset, venture capital, into other developed countries, particularly in Europe.

A case study of a leading private equity firm in South Africa was carried out with the goal of determining whether private equity firms in emerging countries behave in the same way as their counterparts in advanced countries. The fundamental obstacles to the establishment of successful derivatives exchanges and products in emerging markets are reviewed, and certain practical resolutions are recommended. Regulatory guidelines and operational processes that should be evaluated before the launching of sound derivatives securities markets and products are also reviewed.
