Boosting returns on EM bonds through term-premia

During this webinar, we highlight a simple trading rule we have developed internally based on the size of term-premia across 15 EMs, which can boost hedged and unhedged returns on local currency bonds without suffering much increase in volatility. Our main innovation comes in using a unique proprietary data set of vintages of Oxford Economics short-term interest rate forecasts for each of the last 45 quarters.

Please note that we will be repeating the same webinar to cater for the difference in time zones between EMEA, the Americas and APAC:

  • APAC – Tuesday 5th October | 10:00 HKT
  • EMEA – Tuesday 5th October | 10:00 BST
  • Americas – Tuesday 5th October | 16:00 EDT

Frontier market turmoil: Argentina’s value, Sri Lanka’s crisis, Egyptian FX worries

Frontier markets will continue to be volatile in the near term, but bond valuations are attractive with plenty of arbitrage opportunities. We see value in Argentine bonds, as the country should benefit from higher commodity prices and liquidity risks are contained; we focus on the light at the end of Sri Lanka’s tunnel, with markets failing to price in the possibility of a successful IMF program; and also our concerns that further depreciation may be consistent with Egyptian stabilisation efforts.
