Foreign investors to pour nearly $1 trillion into emerging markets in 2017: IIF

Friday, June 16, 2017

Non-resident capital inflows to emerging markets should reach $970 billion this year, a 35 percent increase from 2016, the Institute of International Finance said in a report released on Tuesday.

The projection follows a strong first quarter for emerging market investment that saw the strongest portfolio inflows since 2014. The IIF’s projection is $290 billion higher than its estimate just four months ago, shortly after Donald Trump took office as U.S. president and the organization listed possible American protectionism as its top threat to emerging market portfolio flow growth.
