Report: Developing Market Investments May Tumble In 2014

The World Bank is warning that developing markets could see investment levels fall in 2014, Reuters reported on December 5.

A study released by the World Bank Multilateral Investment Guarantee Agency found that foreign direct investment in emerging markets may drop by as much as 4.5 percent next year. According to the World Bank, investment in developing markets has climbed 2 percent so far in 2013.

“The persistent global economic uncertainty appears to have tainted the overall mood, with economic pessimism underpinning the expected stagnant FDI,” the agency wrote in its report.
