Meike Bliebenicht - Senior Product Specialist, Multi Asset. Alan Wateridge, Director, Business Development.
In the world of multi-asset investing, winning strategies are always rooted in a robust decision-making framework and a forward looking approach.
HSBC Global Asset Management has built, over the last 20 years, one of the largest and most experienced multi asset platforms in the asset management industry and is committed to providing investors with competitive risk-adjusted returns.
In the first of a series of quarterly update calls for the HSBC Global Strategy Portfolios, Meike Bliebenicht, Senior Multi-Asset Product Specialist, will discuss the strategy, performance and recent positioning of the fund range, as well as providing an outlook for the coming months.
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

Gordon and Geoff will explain why the asset class continues to look appealing when compared with most of its EM and DM peers, and why we consider it a strategic rather than thematic allocation in a global portfolio.

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 EM and lifting valuations in the asset class. Are EM valuations compensating investors for the risks?
