Index Returns of Emerging Market Countries

Emerging Markets: A Long-Term Investment Opportunity

A summary view of performance across selected emerging market countries, 2012 through 2021.

The 10-Year Annualized return is for the period 2012 to 2021.

Index performance is shown as gross total return. Gross total return indexes reinvest as much as pos­sible of a company’s distributions. The reinvested amount is equal to the total dividend amount distrib­uted to persons residing in the country of the dividend-paying company. Gross total return indexes do not, however, include any tax credits. Index returns are in USD.
