The Growth Story: Why You Can't Afford To Opt Out of Emerging Markets

Wed, Jun 26, 2019 2:00 PM EDT{LOCAL_TZ}

2018 proved to be a volatile year in emerging markets (EM) investing. Many of the largest asset managers struggled to deliver consistent returns, as geopolitical risks and currency woes weighed on investor sentiment. This has caused some institutional investors to reconsider their overall allogncation to EM with a heightened sense of urgency. But abandoning EM now would mean ignoring a strong track record of growth from this diversifying asset class. In fact, since early 2005, emerging economies have been the sole driver of Gross Domestic Product (GDP) growth globally. And recent troubles in select countries — like domestically generated credit and housing bubbles, debt overhang, or low level of foreign currency reserves — should not color investor sentiment for emerging markets as a whole.

Join moderator Gaurav Mallik, Senior Managing Director of State Street Global Advisors and Chief Portfolio Strategist, and three experts from across the investment spectrum at State Street on Wednesday June 26th, 2019 from 2-3pm ET, as they discuss what considerations institutions must make when investing in emerging markets. Each will provide a unique perspective on how investors can navigate this challenging and nuanced environment to get the most out of their EM allocations in 2019 and beyond.
