south-of-the-border2With growth rates nonexistent in the United States and expectations for future growth muted due to ongoing debt levels and credit problems, investors have turned to other regions of the world to boost their portfolios.


“China and the Asian Tiger countries have long been popular destinations to diversify portfolios. But countries south of the border have also seen an emerging middle class and sometimes are overlooked on the world stage. Buy Individual Companies or Buy a Basket. There are two ways to invest in Latin America: through individual companies that trade on the American exchanges or through a basket of companies in an exchange traded fund (ETF),” Tracey Ryniec reports from Zacks.com.

“If you want to take the no hassle approach there are several ETFs available to capture the Latin American market. You can buy a basket of companies from many countries in the iShares Latin America 40 ETF (ILF). Or you can buy individual countries such as with the popular iShares Brazil (EWZ), iShares Mexico (EWW), or iShares Chile (ECH),” Ryniec Reports
