Percent Developed Markets

These numbers show the percentage of a fund's common stocks that are domiciled in developed, as opposed to emerging, markets.

Developed markets, for purposes of this calculation, include Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, The United States, and a handful of smaller countries and territories (such as Gibraltar).

All other countries are considered emerging markets. Emerging markets normally carry greater political and economic risk than developed countries, and stocks located in them are normally less liquid and more volatile. When Morningstar cannot determine the country in which a stock issuer is domiciled, it is categorized as "Not Available" for any fund that holds it.
