7 Foreign Financial Stocks Thriving in 2010

By InvestorPlace Staff

As investors are pulling out their hair watching stocks plummet in the stock market, there are some emerging market stocks doing quite well. And one sector that continues to improve in many regions is, strangely enough, financials. That's because as emerging economies build infrastructure and get businesses up to speed, they rely on loans to finance rapid growth. Similarly, emerging middle classes sock away more cash in banks as they have more disposable income and a desire for greater financial security.
