Emerging Markets: Making Sense of the Crosswinds

Wed, Apr 19, 2017 2:01 PM EDT{LOCAL_TZ}

Will the 2016 recovery in emerging markets continue? With divergent central bank policies, signs of a policy shift in the U.S. and a transitioning Chinese economy, the answer is not simple. Join our expert panel to dig into the issues that are shaping emerging market economies and how investors can uncover hidden gems.

From internal vs. external economic drivers, to interest rate trends, corporate and sovereign debt profiles, and currency moves, our panel will lay out the case for investing in emerging markets. In addition, the panel will discuss the risks inherent in an emerging markets strategy and shed light on which regions of the world look the most attractive.

Specifically, the panel will discuss:

  • What’s the impact of rising U.S. interest rates on emerging markets?
  • Which emerging markets economies are poised for sustained growth?
  • Investing in equities vs. fixed income instruments
  • What are the risks of investing in emerging markets?
  • Should investors look at regions first and then specific investments or vice versa?

In addition, the panel will take questions from the audience.
