Global financial imbalances after the pandemic

One of the biggest yet least understood features of the world economy are the huge financial imbalances across countries. Over the past decades, international net foreign assets – foreign assets owned by residents, net of domestic assets owned by foreigners – have exploded, affecting current accounts, exchange rates, interest rates, and more. That’s why it’s paramount for policymakers and market participants to understand where NFAs are headed.

In this webinar, we discuss how demographic forces are a key factor that will cause tectonic shifts in the world’s global financial imbalances in the coming decades.

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

  • APAC – Wednesday 21st July | 10:00 HKT
  • EMEA – Wednesday 21st July | 10:00 BST
  • Americas – Wednesday 21st July | 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.
