What are the biggest threats to global markets this year?
According to Eurasia Group's Top Risks for 2013, emerging markets pose the greatest investment risk this year.
“There’s a lot more downside risks in the emerging markets,” says David Gordon, head of research and director of global analysis for Eurasia Group. He tells The Daily Ticker that investors should not view emerging markets as one big money-making market but as a group of diverse economies that should be judged individually.
“For the first time in several years we’re looking at a lot more differentiation in the emerging markets," says Gordon.
Eurasia Group is bullish on Brazil, Colombia, Mexico, the Philippines, South Korea and Burma (Myanmar).
The outlook for the two biggest economies in Asia -- China and India -- are less certain. They will continue to grow but face political pressures, making it harder to invest there, says Gordon.
