The incentive to invest in companies that sell goods and services to consumers in emerging markets has never been stronger, according to Luminous Capital's Alan Zafran. While developed nations are laden with debt and an increasingly aging populace, in emerging markets workers earnings consumer-ready wages is skyrocketing.

Population picks: Yum Brands (YUM), Unilever (UL), Nestle (NSRGY.PK), Colgate-Palmolive (CL), and Domino’s Pizza (DPZ).
