Emerging Markets Healthcare ETF

Healthcare as a sector is looking ahead of many years of growth in emerging markets. Typical for emerging markets is that healthcare is lagging behind as it is not always affordable for large groups. 

When personal income is on the rise so will health care expenditure. Simultaneously you will see that more and more healthcare products and services will be available. More hospitals, more doctors, more pharmacies but also more treatments and medicines. 

Maybe it is a peculiar fact that healthcare is not the first moving market when an economy is growing. People prefer to spend their larger incomes first to luxury products and gadgets. But people keep getting ill and slowly but steady they pay more and more for healthcare. 

This Emerging Markets healthcare ETF therefore is one for the long-term with steady price movements during many years although a strong drawback of the economy may be a cause of lower prices.
