In 2003 Goldman Sachs analysts coined the term "BRIC" to refer to the high-growth economies of Brazil, Russia, India, and China. For growth-oriented investors, these markets created very appealing options for investment. Yet, risks posed in these markets have led to a substantial amount of investment in BRIC Mutual Funds. Judging by several important BRIC funds, high growth has been realized but only through taking on substantial risks. Based on data already compiled, this report seeks to do several things: First, provide specific guidelines in creating and investing in BRIC mutual funds; Second, revisit the growth factors of each of these countries to predict whether or not growth will continue; Third, based on both findings, provide an argument as to whether or not the BRIC markets can provide a stable, high-growth option investment. Based on the research, BRIC mutual funds will be a viable option for long-term, growth-oriented investors.
