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?

A few years ago "ESG” was just a page at the back of a presentation. Today it has achieved greater prominence with new initiatives such as impact investing and the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals. However, questions still remain about what ESG integration really means and whether the increasing use of frameworks and questionnaires is distracting from engagement.
This expert panel will look at what ESG integration means and at the practical implementation of ESG considerations within portfolios. They will discuss whether ESG can be implemented, at best, without negatively impacting returns or whether there is recent evidence that it can actually benefit both risk and return.
While impact investing dominates the headlines, most of the assets that firms manage on behalf of their clients integrate an assessment of ESG factors into their process but do not tilt towards sustainable investments. The panel will discuss this issue and the likely future trends in ESG investment including how ESG fits in with the Mega trends defined by the PRI or WEF.
