EMERGING MARKETS DEBT: AN APPEALING ASSET CLASS

ffffffff

FAVORABLE INFLOWS

As investors continue to seek yielding solutions in the current low core rates environment, the Emerging Markets Bond funds have attracted supportive inflows since the beginning of the year, totaling +USD 24.6 Bn inflows in the EM Bond Funds registered in Europe (Source: Morningstar, EAA Emerging Markets Bond categories as of 31/08/2019).

        

A ROBUST 2019 PERFORMANCE
 

Since the beginning of the year, the sovereign debt of Emerging Markets in hard currency, as described by the J.P. Morgan EMBI Global Diversified Index1 (JPM EMBIGD), has displayed a +13% return2. Besides, in the first semester of 2019, this index exhibited the best 6-month start to year in a decade-long, post-crisis period3. The Emerging Markets Debt clearly demonstrates in 2019 its attractiveness for investors.
