Main description

Chart a course for success in the fertile terrain of BRIC investing!

Investing in Brazil, Russia, India, and China is a whole new game. In order to avoid nightmare scenarios, you have to inform yourself about the corporate governance problems rampant in BRIC companies, their boards of directors, potential shady double-dealings, and other critical conflicts of interest. You’ll find, though, that the benefits are well worth it.

Written by two high-level figures at Standard & Poor’s who apply their company’s own methods and processes, this is a detailed roadmap to analyzing corporate governance in the world’s top emerging markets, helping you make sound decisions and proper evaluations prior to investing in them.

Investing in BRIC Countries explains:

  • Why governance is critical to international investing success
  • The secrets of S&P’s methodology for analyzing governance in emerging markets
  • How to apply advanced thinking to a number of real-life cases

Investing in BRIC Countries is the best tool available for mitigating your exposure to risky deals and other problems that can arise when dealing with international companies.
