It is no secret that emerging markets come with a high-risk, high reward tag. According to the World Bank, China and India saw GDP growth of over 6.5% each in 2017, while developed markets like the UK and the US were hovering below 3%. Canada saw its GDP grow 3%.

But on the other hand, emerging market stocks have been beaten down this year. The S&P/TSX Composite index is down over 4%, year to date, while the S&P 500 is up 7.8%. But the Morningstar Emerging Markets index is down over 12% year to date.
