Not unlike previous financial crisis, the strengthening US dollar, poor market liquidity and risk-off environment have seen emerging markets suffer significantly. The MSCI Emerging Markets Index fell more than 30% between the months of February and March 2020.
While there are concerns about the ability of emerging market governments to implement monetary and/or fiscal policies to reinvigorate their local markets, China looks set to lead the way with early signs of economic recovery in a post COVID-19 world.
What does this disruption and the anticipated recovery mean for long term investors?
Key themes to be addressed include
- Portfolio Construction: The role of emerging markets in the portfolio
- Macro Trends: De-globalisation, supply chain dis-integration and geopolitics
- The China opportunity
