Webinar – Emerging Market Debt Local Currency: “the good, the bad and the ugly”

This feeds the old argument for investors to stay clear of local currency emerging market bonds during a crisis. However, currencies can go both ways, as investors have experienced in the past. Getting the currency right is not for the faint hearted and depends upon making the right macro calls most of the time, not only for the emerging markets but also for the US dollar and the other developed market economies of the world.

Choosing between the “good, bad and the ugly” is at the core of our analysis of the inter-dependency of these various economies and currencies.
