NEW YORK (
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.
