China, Brazil Top U.S. as Best Places for Investors, Poll Shows

Investors say they are seeing opportunity and taking on greater risk, looking more to emerging markets such as China, Brazil and India than developed countries, a Bloomberg survey shows.

The U.S. was in fourth place behind those economies in offering the most opportunity, in the latest quarterly Bloomberg Global Poll of 1,030 investors, analysts and traders who are Bloomberg subscribers. The world’s largest economy was also named the third-worst place to invest behind the European Union and Japan. Some respondents cited the Federal Reserve move to buy $600 billion of Treasuries as cause for concern.
