Collings said that he remained unconvinced that developing markets have not yet shaken off their fundamental connection to the West, pointing to recent trends of volatility.

'If you look from the perspective of the equity markets then you can see that the two are still closely aligned. We can see that from patterns of volatility,' said Collings.

He added that the divergence that was apparent in the tracking was due to the growing economic power of companies and individuals in the regions themselves.

'They are still being primarily driven by western investor sentiment. When you see markets in the west fall they go at the same time. But when they bounce they tend to do so a lot higher.'

While the 'huge wealth transfer' flowing south and east would lead to closer alignment of the markets at a corporate level, the true differentiator would be private prosperity.

'There is still a huge amount of money that remains just sitting there and a huge amount of development still to take place. Domestic savings and the development of capital markets will be driving that growth,' said Collings.
