If you would like to know more about the background on emerging markets, or if you are looking for a viable new investment opportunity, listen in to Kate's interview with Jamie Anderson, her guest on today's show, as he shares his expertise and talks about his new ETF, LARE, which was launched in December of 2015.
Jamie, an emerging market expert and investor, is the managing partner of Tierra Partners, who offers the only US listed ETF to invest in Latin American Real Estate. More than half of the assets of LARE are invested in Brazil.
On today's episode Jamie talks about:
•The shift in emerging markets, from being export oriented economies, to becoming more internally focused consumption economies- Mexico being a good example.
•How the young population base of the BRICS countries is contributing to their growth as consumer nations.
•How apartment buildings in Mexico are becoming a new product for Mexican Real Estate Developers.
•The changes implemented by Mexico in the 90's that have allowed for the development of the Real Estate market there.
•The story behind the formation of the Latin American Real Estate Fund (LARE), as a product.
•Over 80% of the 58 equities in the LARE are not available in any other product.
•Why a product like the LARE could not have been put out 5 or 6 years ago.
•The index behind the LARE ETF.
•The expense ratio of the LARE as compared to certain domestic products.
•The all round advantages of the LARE product.
Host, Kate Stalter offers some tips today, for empty nesters. She talks about some planning considerations for people whose kids are no longer living at home. This is often the time to re-evaluate the whole financial picture, to prepare for an active, healthy retirement. This may involve downscaling in some areas, examining debts and possibly re-evaluating insurance requirements. It could also be a time to create new experiences with the family, ones that better reflect the current changes.
