Additionally, BlackRock advises investors to consider India as a potential long-term play as policy progress and a turn in the credit cycle coudl further support fundamentals.
“India is another emerging market that we find attractive for long-term investors,” BlackRock said. “The country continues to be one of the growth bright spots in emerging markets with a recovery that is broadening out to most of the economy. In addition to benefiting from some of the same forces affecting emerging markets overall, the weakness in oil prices has been a boon for India over the past two years and allowed for significant adjustments to the inflation trend and external accounts.”
