- At the end of 2013, emerging market stocks had a 12-month dividend yield of 2.7%. There have only been eight calendar years that began with a higher yield and the average return over those eight years was 46%.
- From 2000-2010. The annualized return on the MSCI Emerging Markets index was 10.9%, developed markets did just 1.3%.
- Going back to 1900, three countries are still “emerging” 114 years later: China, Russia and South Africa.
- From 1945-1949, Japanese equities lost almost 98% of their value, in US dollar terms.
- Since 1950, emerging market equities delivered annualized gains of 12.5%, versus 10.8% for developed markets.
- The ratio of emerging/developed market volatility was 1.9 in 1980 and has since fallen to 1.1, in other words emerging market stocks are now just 10% more volatile than developed market stocks.

- Emerging markets have ~55% share of the global population.
- Since 1995, share issuance has accounted for the majority of market-cap growth for emerging markets, not price appreciation.
