Our emerging market debt strategies
Whether it’s to take advantage of the growing trend of sustainable investing and impact bonds in EM, reducing volatility through a short duration strategy, or using a flexible approach to invest across the whole EM asset class, we have a comprehensive offering that aims to meet clients’ needs.
Our strategies invest across the full EMD spectrum, with diversified portfolios that reflect our best ideas from both corporate and sovereign issuers, seeking to generate alpha from a broad opportunity set. We typically utilise a total return approach within EMD which places a greater focus on generating positive returns across all market environments, and also allows us to construct high conviction portfolios.
All our strategies utilise our integrated Environment, Social and Governance process giving investors an additional level of scrutiny and added value.
