Emerging Markets - More to Give

Presented by

Brendan Maton

About this talk

Emerging markets have shown their mettle in the years following the GFC. Strong growth and increasing share of global GDP, healthy balance sheets, improving transparency and liquidity have improved Emerging Markets' appeal among institutional investors. • With global developed markets making a strong start to 2013, does the relative appeal of EMs still hold true? What’s in store over the year ahead? • Are institutional investors still under-allocated to Emerging Markets? • What is driving EM returns and how can investors evaluate different components? • What approaches are delivering results? • We review an equal weighted country strategy that has produced consistent results and enhanced EM diversification.
