Russia is now the largest overweight position in the average emerging-market fund, which holds 1.46% more Russian stocks in its portfolio than the benchmark MSCI Emerging Markets index. With stocks in the country remaining remarkably cheap despite offering some of the most attractive dividend yields in the developing world, Russia’s market is fast becoming an increasingly pivotal part of any savvy emerging market investors’ portfolio.
