Advances in technology have encouraged globalisation and had a positive effect on economic growth and job creation in developing countries. Emerging economies like China and India are now key growth markets for investors.
However investment in companies operating in developing economies brings with it a variety of risks that are most often associated with issues of concern to responsible investors – human and labour rights abuses, bribery and corruption, poor environmental standards, and a general lack of disclosure and transparency
