In 2009, we reported the Top Performing Stock Markets in the world. In that list, Sri Lanka’s Colombo Stock Exchange led the pack, locking in a 125% overall return in just one year. Yup, 125% — which means if you invested in the Sri Lankan stock market, you would have earned more than double your money within one year.
In 2010, Sri Lanka’s astounding performance continued. It again ranked number 1 in the list of the best performing stocks in the world. It registered a 96.0% full-year return, again almost doubling investments in one year.
If for example, you invested $100,000 in the Colombo Stock Exchange at the start of 2009, this amount is now worth $441,000 at the end of 2010. That’s a lot of money earned in just two years.
