Emerging Markets Debt:

Yerlan Syzdykov

"The asset class may benefit from credit convergence in the long-term whilst having the potential to achieve higher yields in the short-term.


We aim to take full advantage by combining it with our bond selection capability."



Yerlan Syzdykov

Head of Emerging Markets - Bond & High Yield

Real Growth, Real Yield, Real Opportunity?

November 2016


Following the U.S. Election result, we believe that the outlook for Emerging Markets remains conditional on a series of external drivers. These include global central bank policy continuity and credibility, the outlook for U.S. monetary and fiscal policy and the health and stability of the European economy (and its associated political infrastructure).  


The Trump victory may reflect in greater levels of uncertainty and higher volatility, particularly in places like Mexico. While, on the other hand, Russia could trade slightly better given the improved potential for a removal of sanctions.


As we stand today, the combined Emerging Markets balance sheet is stable, though this predicates on the continuity of current rates to some degree. The effect of the strong technical support the asset class has seen in recent months has been to enable weaker issuers to restructure through new issuance. We continue to see solid margins across credit in aggregate, and therefore remain positive on the outlook for selected sovereigns and credits.

Emerging Markets Debt, an Underinvested Story


In our view, Emerging Markets are drawing attention for these reasons:


  • Appealing growth prospects from long-terms drivers such as:

          - demographics

          - economic diversification

          - governance improvements


  • EM yields remain strong ... and well-supported
