A fascinating exploration of which countries offer promising investment opportunities for Americans now and in the years to come Most emerging markets investment guides focus on financial metrics, but fail to provide the reader with new and relevant insights into the history of the countries, the views of the people on the street, and the financial shenanigans that go on behind the scenes, that make for truly informed investing. As a result, despite the growing interest in investing in these markets, investors are often missing key opportunities because they either have incorrect information about a country where they might invest, or simply don't know what questions they should be asking. Where In the World Should I Invest: An Insider's Guide to Making Money Around the Globe is here to help. Drawing on author Karim Rahemtulla's personal experiences traveling the globe and exploring the capitals where business is transacted, the book outlines the perils, pitfalls, and rewards of investing in "low float" markets.
* The essential resource for taking the right steps in exploring investment opportunities in foreign and emerging markets * Expert advice from an author with 20 years experience covering emerging markets * Commentary on the expectations of foreign investors, the fears of investing abroad, how to set up legal offshore accounts, and much more Packed with unique insights into twenty countries and regions around the globe based on the author's extensive interviews and travels, Where In the World Should I Invest is a must-read for anyone thinking of expanding their investment portfolio overseas.

Economic growth in the West has slowed to a crawl, severely hampering investment opportunities, but there's still plenty of money to be made--perhaps more than ever before--you just need to know where to look. In Where in the World Should I Invest?: An Insider's Guide to Making Money Around the Globe, emerging markets trading expert Karim Rahemtulla shares over two decades of experience travelling the globe in search of winning investment opportunities, revealing the secrets to putting your money into up-and-coming markets.

With numerous developing countries enjoying rates of growth four- to five-times greater than the United States and other developed nations, the time to invest abroad has come. Providing comprehensive, accessible, and at times amusing evaluations of opportunities in China, India, Egypt, Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand, Turkey, Singapore, Russia and the CIS, Brazil, Chile, Africa, Central America, Eastern Europe, and Argentina, this book is the essential resource for exploring investment opportunities in emerging markets. Rich in detail, it provides unique insights into which countries are on the verge of breaking out and which are likely to fall short of their potential, giving you everything you need to make careful, considered decisions about what to do with your money.

Unlike other guides to investing in emerging markets which focus on financial metrics but ignore practical, man-on-the-ground knowledge, Where in the World Should I Invest? is packed with expert advice gleaned from the author's time spent meeting with local officials, hanging out with soon-to-be-deposed finance ministers, and dealing with frauds.

Analyzing the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats involved in investing in developing markets, and even providing an occasional sightseeing tip, Where in the World Should I Invest? offers investors of all stripes a unique behind-the-scenes look at "low float" markets around the globe, equipping you with everything you need to expand your portfolio overseas safely and profitably.

"Investing globally requires both a guide and a plan of action.

His international background and extensive travels combine to provide a frank and practical review of the most dynamic growth stories of today and tomorrow." --BILL BONNER, New York Times bestselling author

"Karim Rahemtulla is the new International Man. To profit and invest in the dynamic global economy of the 21st century, you need a well-documented passport--but if you don't have 10 years to travel, better to buy Karim's book, an indispensable shortcut. This is the best hands-on guidebook to global investing I've ever read. His personal travels are brimming with insights and wisdom." --MARK SKOUSEN, Editor of Forecasts & Strategies and bestselling author

"Investors should seek out the best investment opportunities wherever they reside. And I know no one is more capable of uncovering them than Karim Rahemtulla. He has been there on the ground many times--in Europe, Asia, Latin America, and the Pacific Rim--researching and analyzing hundreds of stocks and bonds, and making recommendations to his readers with extraordinary success. Now--with Where in the World Should I Invest?--he shares the best of what he's learned with you. This is essential reading for every serious investor." --ALEX GREEN, Investment Director, The Oxford Club and New York Times bestselling author

"Karim has written a handy and practical investment guide to some of the world's most attractive emerging markets. But it's unlike most such guides in that Karim has done what others haven't: He got out of his office and had a look himself. This is the best kind of research, by a well-traveled hand who has been there and asked the tough questions. A must-have for anyone thinking of investing abroad." --CHRIS MAYER, author of World Right Side Up: Investing Across Six Continents and Editor of Capital & Crisis

Follow his advice, and you could be one of them." --MIKE WARD, Publisher, Money Map Press

From Tallinn to Toledo, he shows us opportunities that exist in markets all over the world and are accessible to anyone, not just the Wall Street elite. A top-notch read for every serious investor." --KEVIN KERR, President, Kerr Trading International
