Portfolio Strategy

The Africa-Centric ETFdb Portfolio is designed for investors who are looking to overweight exposure to the African markets. This portfolio may appeal to investors who wish to round out emerging market exposure beyond the more popular BRIC and Asian countries. Investors often times overlook investments in Africa given the geopolitical instability that is associated with the continent, however, there are several reasons that support a bullish outlook for this economic region. The continent’s GDP grew by nearly 5% every year from 2000 to 2008, highlighting the lucrative growth potential in the coming years. Africa has a very high concentration of the world’s natural resources, including 40% of gold reserves and 30% of minerals reserves.
