Turbulent emerging markets
Dissecting the sustained merits of the asset class
INSIGHT ARTICLE |
Emerging markets experienced a turbulent 2018 as ongoing concerns around future economic growth resulted in volatility in much of the developed world. A stronger U.S. dollar, weaker local currency, debt concerns and strong rhetoric on trade all converged this year, creating sustained pressure on the entirety of the emerging markets asset class.
Historically, emerging markets have exhibited more volatility than developed markets. We foresee this pattern continuing; however, expect investors to be compensated for that risk over time as current valuations are attractive compared with developed markets.
