The findings indicate of the existence of a consensus that highlights that emerging markets portray characteristics that differentiate them from developed markets, situation that generates both opportunities and threats that have to be considered for their evaluation. Also, we have found three research papers that indicate limitations in the selection methodologies usually applied when evaluating the potential of emerging markets, proposing adaptations to the existing methodologies.
