Please join Steve Ellis in this regular webcast as he looks to explain Fidelity’s Emerging Market Debt team’s views on why, in a low yield world and despite soft fundamentals, emerging market debt continues to offer an attractive income for an acceptable level of risk. The asset class has enjoyed a strong start to the year, with the supply/demand imbalance created by inflows and limited debt issuance leading yields to come in. This has resulted in an approximate 4% return for hard currency debt over the year to date. Local currency sovereign debt currently yields around 6.4%, US dollar-denominated sovereign debt yields 5.7% and US dollar-denominated corporates yield 5.2%. This compares very favorably to yields on offer from various asset classes in the developing world; particularly when considering a significant proportion of this universe is rated investment grade.
Emerging markets can throw up opportunities where one might least expect to find them. Please join Steve Ellis in discovering where the market opportunities lie.
