Some of us know the furniture store in Canada named THE BRICK. However, have you ever hear of the BRIC? This may be one of the best investment opportunities you find these days. The BRIC is an acronym for Brazil, Russia, India, China. All these countries are living an economic surge at the moment and you can be part of it.

You probably don’t know much about countries included in the BRIC. Nothing however that could help buying stocks overseas. Don’t be sad, financial institutions though of you. They always do when there is money in the pot!

Recently, several funds where created to include the best performing stocks in the BRIC. Hence, you will benefit from professional portfolio management for a small price. In fact, management fees related to these mutual funds are not necessarily higher than others.

By buying BRIC oriented mutual funds, you will avoid to research the globe for the best companies. You will also be able to participate in some of the fastest economic growth on earth.

Is it risk free? Nope! Like any other type of investment, several factors remain uncontrollable. The BRIC’s economy runs like a train and seems to not slow down for the moment. However, there is a lot of speculation on the market and it can crash at anytime. We just had a good example when the Shanghai Stock Market lost almost 9% in one day.

The BRIC mutual funds are for advised investors who understand the risk of emerging economies and are comfortable with their volatility. As everybody else, they are also able to appreciate high return when things go as planned!
