Frontier markets are still a buy

The gradual return to pre-pandemic levels has marked a pause, but we think there is still value in high-yield sovereign bonds. We examine a set of frontier markets which are particularly attractive, including Egypt, Sri Lanka, and Argentina. In Africa, the post-Covid environment has intensified the pressure on public finances; we focus our attention on Ghana and Angola, both countries are facing a defining moment for their economic policies.

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

  • APAC – Tuesday 24th August | 10:00 HKT
  • EMEA – Tuesday 24th August | 10:00 BST
  • Americas – Tuesday 24th August | 16:00 EDT

Africa: What to expect from elections in 2023

Thirteen African countries are scheduled to hold presidential or legislative elections this year. This webinar will focus on the four elections of greatest potential impact: Nigeria, home to the largest population in Africa; Zimbabwe, where the fractious and unloved Zanu-PF has already unleashed violence on its opponents; Gabon, where President Ali Bongo may try (again) to cheat to get a third term; and the DRC, where armed conflict is complicating the already massive task of registering 50 million voters across a territory the size of Western Europe. We will also touch on the elections in Eswatini, Libya, and Madagascar.

Global Climate Service: Climate Catastrophe

The Global Climate Service quantifies the macroeconomic impacts of five climate scenarios against a stated policies baseline. These scenarios help businesses understand the trade-offs and implications of climate mitigation. This quarter our new scenario – Climate Catastrophe – underscores the costs of climate inaction. It models a high-emissions pathway by which global warming, temperature volatility and more frequent extreme heat events cause severe physical damages that accelerate over time.
