Taiwan, Israel, Chile and Korea - TICK

An investment theme focusing on four economies that rank between the developed and developing nations. The four nations of Taiwan, Israel, Chile and Korea – collectively known as TICK – share some common characteristics that enhance their investment appeal. In addition to having functioning economies with healthy growth rates and prosperous citizenry, these nations possess strong legal and business frameworks that reduce political and country risk. The TICK investment theme came about as a counterpoint to the popular BRIC, which encompasses the giant economies of Brazil, Russia, India and China.
