BRIC-hungry investors who feel that the Indian marketplace will continue to outperform have a number of choices to consider. Hands-on individuals can turn to products like EPI, FXI, EWZ and the Market Vectors Russia ETF (RSX) on an individual basis and weight each according to their personal preferences.
Meanwhile, those who would rather take a less active approach may want to consider pairing a fund like BKF with EPI. At 14%, BKF already boasts the heaviest India exposure among the major BRIC ETFs. By combining this fund with a dedicated India ETF like EPI, it is possible to further ramp up a portfolio's stake in the Indian marketplace.
Emerging markets have faced some pressure in recent weeks as the global market mood has soured. The shakiness may persist in the near term, but I encourage investors to avoid writing off these developing countries. They have become increasingly important to watch and essential to any well-rounded investment portfolio.
