Emerging Markets Local Bond
The investment team dynamically manages the strategy’s allocation across the three key levers of foreign currency, interest rates and credit. The team employs an investment process that combines top-down macro analysis with bottom-up emerging market country and credit analysis while separating views with respect to those three levers. Through our top-down macro process and bottom-up credit research, the team seeks to opportunistically manage country, sector and security levels. As a result, this allows the team to potentially enhance yield and total return as well as effectively manage risk. The team diversifies investments across the entire emerging markets spectrum with targeted risk budget exposures across these opportunities.
