    What would be your maximum allocation in emerging markets for your portfolio?

    For me, 10% seems about right for a long term (15+ years) buy and hold investment strategy.

    Hey there jomond :)

    i've also just started my journey into index funds and ETFs.. 3months old...

    my tilt towards emerging markets is also capped at 10%. reason? result of reading and recommendations from others (eg my FP).
    i've also checked the historical volatility of the fund and am happy with how it sits in my basket of funds.
