TK and Turbo,

I couldn't agree more. I am very surprised that this space has been as under serviced as it has been. Granted, like you mentioned turbo, I think demand to date has been hard to determine. Plus I know there are a number of regulatory issues. I'm sure the current financial meltdown has pushed back that "couple year" time line since investors seem to be running for the hills.

Before that however, it seemed like EM/international markets were getting more media attention with increasing celerity. El-Erian was in two major articles. The Citi announcement you mentioned. Morgan Stanley had a keynote report touting the benefits of EM infrastructure growth. It all seemed like EM were becoming much more mainstream.

By the way - I found a startup company called Emerginvest that is in this space. They don't do trading but claim they cover 120+ stock exchanges. Seems like a pretty cool site I thought I'd share. (

Hopefully the bargains created by the recent crisis abroad will attract more attention, however I have a sinking feeling the domestic issues will completely drown it out. We'll see in time I'm sure.
