Join HSBC's Senior EMD Portfolio Manager, Vinayak Potti and EMD Trader, Scott Davis, as they discuss our approach to navigating the current Emerging Markets Debt (EMD) landscape. Amanda LaMarca, Senior EMD Product Specialist, will moderate the discussion.
We believe that EMD valuations have now outpaced an improvement in fundamentals, leading to reduced risk premiums. This has occurred as policy uncertainty in developed markets and political risks in EM have increased. In this environment, we think relative value trades will be a key driver in delivering alpha.
•Potential pick-up in US Treasury volatility and its impact on EMD spreads
•EMD premiums are not compensating for global political risks
•Relative value trades are key: opportunities and examples
Please join HSBC portfolio managers, Nishant Upadhyay and Jaymeson Kumm, as they discuss opportunities and risks in the local and hard currency segments of the asset class. Brian Dunnett, Senior Product Specialist, will moderate the discussion.
Emerging markets debt (EMD) has performed extremely well so far this year, and is showing historically low volatility. Price stability coupled with improving fundamentals in some EM economies are attracting funds into EMD and lifting valuations in the asset class. But will investors continue to be compensated for the risks?
• Where we see value in the asset class
• EMD and correlations to oil
• Benefits of exposure to high yield and frontier markets debt
With monetary policy normalization in the US underway, managing duration exposure using short duration credit can help mitigate volatility in fixed income portfolios against a backdrop of rising rates.
Join portfolio manager Mary Bowers and product specialist Julian Moore as they explore the lesser known short duration segment within global high yield. Together, they will provide insight into:
-What exactly defines the global short duration high yield segment?
-How it can be particularly attractive in today’s markets
-Where we see the markets moving in the future

Corporate bonds that span the BBB to BB rated space are referred to as "crossover bonds." By focusing on this space, investors can maintain a higher quality rating while adding relatively higher yield for the level of credit risk.
