Panel Discussion - Global Emerging Markets - Outlook for 2019
Ryan Ross | Richard Lightbound | Magdalena Polan | Adrian Lowcock
About this talk
Growth in developed markets is slowing, which will effect Emerging Markets. But what are the causes of the slowdown, and how do they compare to the past? If the source is oil prices, what does this mean for oil-rich countries like Venezuela, Nigeria, or Saudi Arabia?
If the source is Central Banking policies, either coming from the US Federal Reserve or the European Central Bank – how will relative strength or weakness in currencies affect countries that hold debt?
When headlines abound around trade, trade deficits, and trade surpluses, how can investors hedge their bets?
And as economies emerge alongside technology, labor costs become as much an economic issue as a political issue. What role does automation play in the growth story?
This panel will discuss questions facing emerging markets including:
· Are EMs better equipped to handle growth slowdown than in 2015? What do they have going for them now that they didn’t back then?
· Are we in an EM rally? If so, how long will the EM rally last?
· Central Banking policies effect on EM
· Areas to avoid vs. attractive areas?
