The South American Exchange-Traded Funds may focus on a single country, such as Brazil or Argentina, or a group of countries. Although some of the South American markets are developed e.g. Brazil, the economic gap between the rich and the poor in majority of those countries is bigger than on most other continents. Most South American countries have large amounts of natural resources and they are characterized by positive demographics with relatively young population and rising middle class. All of these factors significantly impact the increasing number of investments in this region. The majority of the South American countries are to be counted among the emerging markets. Most of them are commodity exporters, their growth rates are driven by the global economic environment, which is why the South American markets are sensitive to fluctuations on the global markets.
