Emerging Market Debt

Positive outlook and diversification benefits

Why Emerging Market Debt?

We believe the debt of today’s emerging markets represent some of the world’s most dynamic credit opportunities. Relative to much of the developed world, these markets offer a great capacity for economic growth.

Emerging market debt exhibits low correlation with conventional fixed income and low-to-moderate correlation with equities. Emerging market debt is an attractive alternative to traditional fixed income because of:

  • Increased investment opportunities
  • Improving credit quality
  • Attractive debt dynamics
  • Significant diversification benefits
  • Increasing importance of frontier markets
  • Improving country fundamentals
