Strong yield prospects
With volatile markets creating uncertainty, the strong yield prospects and effective diversification opportunities offered by EMD are powerful draws for investors.
But vast scope also brings specific challenges. Finding the best prospects for returns in such a big and complex universe requires skill, local knowledge and in-depth insight.

The Importance of ESG
Environmental, social and governance (ESG) concerns are deeply embedded in our EMD investment process because we believe intelligent ESG assessment and engagement can deliver better outcomes and enhance investor returns.
We combine thematic and sector research produced by our Central ESG Team with issuer level insights created by our EMD team. This dual approach helps us fully understand how bond issuers manage their strengths and weaknesses.
Given the wide range of political systems in emerging-market countries, we have created a proprietary Environmental, Social, Governance and Political framework – designed to also assess the specific political risks associated with bonds issued by emerging market governments.
