PR Newswire

NEW YORK, April 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The "BRIC" nations (Brazil, Russia, India and China) remain an important part of an investor's exposure to the Emerging Markets, but what is the outlook for these nations' economies as we move further into 2013, and what emerging and frontier markets might be poised to become the "next BRICs"? On Wednesday, April 17, 2013 at 11:00am EDT, S&P Capital IQ will be hosting a webinar that will seek to provide answers to those types of questions.

Titled "ETF Analyst Hour: Using ETFs to Seek to Capitalize on Emerging and Frontier Market Growth," this event will feature Alec Young, S&P Capital IQ Global Equity Strategist, and Todd Rosenbluth, S&P Capital IQ Director of ETF and Mutual Fund Research, who will look at ways that investors can gain exposure to the BRICs, particularly China, as well as other markets in the developing world that could be positioned for future growth.

This webinar is the latest in S&P Capital IQ's monthly ETF Analyst Hour series and one hour of CFP continuing education credit is available to attendees. Interested attendees can register here.

Rosenbluth, one of architects of the firm's proprietary ETF research and ranking methodology, and Young will provide a deep dive into diversified Emerging Market and Frontier Market ETFs in order to provide attendees with insights into current trends as advisors look to incorporate international ETFs into various portfolios.

Anthony Hohmann, ETF product manager, will moderate the discussion and highlight S&P Capital IQ's ETF holdings-based ranking methodology and model performance to date.

Following the presentation, the ETF research reports for the ETFs discussed will be available to all attendees. The ETF reports are originally published on S&P Capital IQ's MarketScope Advisor platform.
