Rising macro uncertainty, higher interest rates and a strengthening US dollar have led to a modest tightening of global financial conditions. This has laid bare vulnerabilities that had, until recently been masked by plentiful global liquidity. Countries reliant on external borrowing to fund growth and large current account deficits—such as Turkey and Argentina—have suffered the most. Yet it is worth noting both Turkey and Argentina are relative outliers within the emerging market (EM) world. Many other EM countries, especially in Asia, appear healthier with improving current account balances. And structural reforms in countries such as China and India are likely to put economies on the path to more sustainable, long-term growth, in our view.
In this session we will cover the commonly-held myths surrounding the EM investment landscape, understand the nuances within the asset classes and looking ahead why we believe current valuations and strong earnings growth offer investors an attractive entry point.

Urbanisation will continue to drive both businesses and people to cities, we see no disruption of this trend. Global Cities are where economic growth is the strongest and therefore provide the environment for both income and capital growth. A real asset portfolio invested in the world’s strongest cities and diversified across sub sectors, will provide investors with enduring value. The fund does not change its investment strategy based on macro events such as Brexit, trade wars or interest rate predictions. The investment process is heavily reliant on data, three key databases quantify which markets and companies the team focus on.
