A few observations:

  • Last year the best performing market was Hungary with a return of about 30%. This is surprising since Hungary is hardly on any EM investors’ radar.
  • The top three worst performing markets were all from Latin America – Colombia, Brazil and Peru.
  • Brazil lost its shine back in 2010. After topping the ranking in 2009, Brazil has been a negative performing market every year since 2011. Last year it lost an astonishing 42% after a fall of 13% in the previous year.
  • Russia was the worst market in 2014. But the market bounced back in 2015 to basically remain flat while most emerging markets declined.
