Investors globally are striving for as much clarity as possible to shape and support their portfolio planning. As the unparalleled uncertainty over the past 12 months in macroeconomics and financial markets continues to linger, it is more important than ever to be able to make well-informed investment decisions.
Across asset classes, sectors and geographies, effective early warning signals play an essential role in helping investors translate data into actionable insights.
This interactive and timely session will provide case studies and practical perspectives from experienced practitioners to help investors overcome the challenges they face by having the right information at the right time.
Key talking points we will discuss include:
- How investors have shifted and adapted their approach in a post-pandemic era to how they assess the economic and investment landscape – and identify new opportunities
- How investors try to pinpoint and interpret early warning signals in their target markets and (public and private) assets
- Tools and techniques to enhance returns yet mitigate risk – including making sense of broad and deep datasets
- The extent to which data and analytics are used and applied to derive insights and drive investment decisions
- Tim Riordan, Portfolio manager, Aware Super
- Andy Ji, PhD, Head of Research, Blue Fire AI

Over the past two decades, the value of outstanding US dollar-denominated Emerging Markets (EM) corporate debt has increased by a factor of 20, to over $1.5 trillion – a larger asset pool even than US dollar EM sovereign debt, according to Bank of America Merrill Lynch. This growth has created unique opportunities for investors, particularly those rethinking their asset allocation and risk-reward profiles while seeking diversification and less correlated return streams.
In our upcoming webinar in partnership with Credit Suisse, our expert panel will address questions such as:
- During Covid-19, how well did EM corporate bonds perform and why?
- What are the key risk-reward factors that distinguish EM corporate from EM sovereign debt – and how are they influenced by historical default rates?
- How can EM corporate bond valuations create attractive investment opportunities in countries where sovereign ratings are relatively low?
- When does EM investment grade corporate debt offer an attractive alternative to developed market credit, vis-a-vis the underlying country exposures?
- Which unique considerations are relevant to EM bonds, particularly when it comes to transparency, governance and auditing?
