Morningstar places funds in a given category based on the portfolio’s statistics and composition over the past three years. Morningstar categories help investors and investment professionals make meaningful comparisons between funds. Diversified emerging-markets portfolios tend to divide their assets among 20 or more nations, although they tend to focus on the emerging markets of Asia and Latin America rather than on those of the Middle East, Africa, or Europe. These portfolios invest predominantly in emerging market equities, but some funds also invest in both equities and fixed income investments from emerging markets. Please note Morningstar category rankings are not indicative of future investment performance.
