Abstract: In this study, despite the increasing economic integration because of the globalization and technological improvement, whether emerging markets provides international diversification benefits to investors is examined. International diversified portfolios are created according to Markowitz’s Mean-Variance Model. These portfolios consist of equity indices returns of developed markets, emerging markets and SMEs (Small and Medium Sized Enterprises) in developed markets. Also, portfolios consisting of ADR and equity indices returns of developed markets, emerging markets and SMEs are created. International diversified portfolios created with Markowitz’s Mean-Variance Model are evaluated according to performance evaluation criterions and VaR of these portfolios are calculated so that benefits of diversification are expressed quantitatively.
