Poll: Turkey on BRIC Par

LONDON — Turkey is most suited to join the so-called BRIC club of emerging markets, comprising Brazil, Russia, India and China, Royal Bank of Scotland Group said Friday, citing an "interactive poll" on emerging markets held at a meeting in London.

Thirty-five percent of about 100 participants working in equity, foreign exchange and credit markets voted Turkey the top candidate to join, followed by Indonesia with 23 percent and Mexico with 16 percent, the bank said.

South Korea scored 12 percent and South Africa 11 percent, the bank added. The poll was based on factors including a country's geopolitical importance and credit fundamentals.
