PIMCO Total Return ETF Manager Gross Offers 5 Investing Tips

“Invest in developing economies w attractive balance sheets: Brazil, Mexico, best examples,” Gross tweeted. “Stocks & bonds.”

  • Vanguard Emerging Markets ETF (NYSEArca: VWO)
  • iShares MSCI Emerging Markets Index Fund (NYSEArca: EEM)
  • iShares MSCI Brazil Index Fund (NYSEArca: EWZ)
  • iShares MSCI Mexico Index Fund (NYSEArca: EWW)

Fiscally, developing countries, like Brazil and Mexico, look healthier than developed economies. Emerging markets are low on debt, have better demographics and are in a better position to expand economically.

Lastly, Gross suggests looking into “real assets.”

  • PowerShares DB Commodity Index Tracking Fund (NYSEArca: DBC)
  • SPDR Gold Shares ETF (NYSEArca: GLD)

If inflation does begin to rise, prices on real physical assets, like gold, will hold value.
