mallowstreet University Digital Roundtable: Casting the Widest Net in Emerging Markets Debt
Institutional investors’ appetite for emerging markets debt (EMD) continues to grow. An asset class originally confined to U.S. dollar-denominated sovereign debt now includes corporate issuance and bonds denominated in local emerging market currencies. As the sector matures further, investors are considering how best strategically to allocate capital: as a portion of a multi-asset approach, a dedicated mandate entrusted to an outside manager, or building the investment decision-making, trading, and operations expertise in-house.
This roundtable explores the changing nature of the EMD universe, the key drivers of risk and return in the asset class, the flawed nature of the benchmarks, and other important considerations for institutional investors.
This afternoon session is accredited for CPD points by the Pensions Management Institute (PMI) and is exclusively for pension fund decision makers and their advisers.
