City tourism: the slow road to recovery

City destinations have been harder hit by the pandemic to date due to a typical reliance on more international and business travel while leisure travellers have sought out less crowded destinations, with more available outdoor activities in the early stages of recovery. Current impacts and expected future trends will be discussed in this session, looking at cities relative to wider travel demand, as well as a ranking of top destination cities.

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

  • EMEA – Thursday 27th May | 10:00 BST
  • Americas – Thursday 27th May | 16:00 EDT
  • APAC – Friday 28th May | 10:00 HKT

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.

Latin America’s winners and losers from the war in Ukraine
