The Luxembourg Fund will try to achieve this by investing primarily in stocks of companies based out of Latin American countries or stocks of companies deriving a majority of their revenues from Latin American economies.

Why this ING Latin America Equity Fund has chosed Latin America as a so called “Investment Destination”?
Latin American Countries include Brazil, Argentina, Mexico, Colombia, etc. As per the details in the advertisements, Latin America has experienced a profound transformation over the past few decades. The Latin American economies are becoming increasingly attractive with more stability in its macroeconomic environment and a greater pragmatism in policy & institutional reform. Strong economic growth, reduction in external indebtedness and export dynamism has led to an increased interest in local equity markets from domestic and foreign investors alike.
Thus, Latin America does indeed offer the possibility of discovering opportunities in places you least expect.

What are the risks in ING Latin America Equity Fund?
Now I don’t know how far the above claim is true and will it be able to continue to sustain in the future as well. All these facts are based on past records and it’s the investors who will have to take the risk. Moreover, this is an indirect investment, because it is investing in another foreign fund which will thereby invest in the stocks of the Latin American countries and companies. Forex risk is there, and so is the dependency on the performance of the Luxembourg Fund.
