In fixed income markets, where a hike of a few basis points in interest rates could negate a year’s worth of income, risk-free assets are no longer the norm. Putting theory into practice to uncover opportunities means paying attention to detail.
Information sharing, analysis and on the ground knowledge all contributes to positive emerging market investment strategies, according to Yerlan Syzdykov, global head of emerging markets at Amundi.
Amundi is launching the world’s largest emerging markets green bond fund with IFC. Here's what it could achieve.
The fund house is laying off most of its investment and operations staff in Hong Kong and Singapore in a post-merger restructuring, while keeping teams intact elsewhere in the region.
Several senior staff are believed to have left the fund house following its merger with Pioneer Investments, including heads for Asia institutional and China, as well as a lead equities PM.
A growing gap between Western and Asian central banks’ monetary policies could potentially spur economic growth in Asia and help regional investors enjoy improved returns.
