EMD: High Yields offer attractive entry point

Emerging market debt as an asset class is potentially poised for a rebound after widespread
selloff this year following a sharp rise in US rates, the Ukraine conflict and macro
uncertainty in China. Factors such as low valuations, strong fundamentals and the prospect
of a Fed pivot are all in favour of EM Debt. Matt Morgan, Head of Fixed Income, will explain
why credit selection, backed by solid research, is still key to boosting returns and averting
defaults amid a challenging global growth environment.
