UBP – Webinar – Frontier Debt Markets

9 December 2020 - 09:00 - 10:00

Webinar – Frontier Debt Markets

Frontier debt has grown significantly over the past decade and now warrants serious consideration as a dedicated allocation in the portfolios of investors.

Frontier markets offer an attractive investment opportunity for a number of reasons. The most obvious is that returns have outpaced most other fixed-income asset classes through all relevant periods. The risk premium imbedded in the yields of EM sovereign bonds overcompensates for the risk associated with defaults.

In addition to the historical returns, three of the main traditional macro arguments for investing in EMD – faster growth rates, higher yields, and diversification benefits – are even more true for frontier markets.

Today, frontier markets are the highest yielding liquid debt markets and compelling arguments can be made for considering frontier debt as an alternative to both traditional EM sovereign debt, and US high yield. In a world that is starved for yield, with close to $16 trillion of negatively yielding assets (as of 30 September 2020), investors could stand to benefit significantly from doing so.

If you want to discover more about how to benefit from the highest yields in USD fixed income and how to look at this fast growing asset class, please join us for this educational webinar on Frontier Debt Markets.
