How to protect yourself and prosper as the BRICS nations go it alone

Two weeks ago, the BRICS Development Bank launched. Funds will aid infrastructure and development within the five members of BRICS. These are Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa.

And the bank will provide a contingency fund in times of financial stress to help cushion their currencies.

The Development Bank is a step by emerging nations away from reliance on the West. The bank means they don’t have to approach the International Monetary Fund or the World Bank for funding.

Let’s take a closer look at the impact of this and what you can do to profit from the development…

Emerging markets won’t look back

As it stands, emerging markets only make up about 20% of the world’s trade. But these emerging markets have been under the constraints from Western funding.

The new Development Bank opens this up. And this is most likely the start of an evolution in emerging markets.

So what can you do to position yourself to be in a position to benefit from this change in emerging markets?

Two steps to benefit from the emerging market evolution

Step 1: Have exposure to emerging market
This is probably the easiest step, Bengt Saelensminde in The Right Side explains. Exposure to the South African market is beneficial. To add some diversification, you could also have exposure to another emerging market.

Emerging markets are historically volatile. But the new bank is the first step towards more resilient emerging markets going forward.

Step 2: Stock up on resources
With a new source of funds, development will start to accelerate. This will further fuel demand for resources like oil, gas and other key minerals.

So there you have it, how to protect yourself and prosper as the BRICS nations go it alone.
