Gains from Portfolio Diversification into Less Developed Countries’ Securities
AbstractThis paper substantiates the intuitive argument for international portfolio diversification—diversification that is not limited to the developed markets, but also includes the corporate securities of less developed countries (LDCs). Such diversification, in light of all available evidence, appears to be desirable from the standpoint of the investor.Capital flows resulting from international diversification can tremendously improve liquidity position of the developing countries and provide a major development impact by increasing the probability of success of the capital market development programs being pursued by many LDCs, e.g., Brazil, Venezuela, Colombia, Indonesia, Nigeria, and Korea.© 1977 JIBS.
