Global transportation bottlenecks: Will ordering more ships be enough?

Strong consumer demand and strains on shipping have forced container ship operators to rush in expanding their fleets. However, with problems persisting throughout the whole transport and logistics supply chain – spanning from port and warehouse capacity to the ability of logistics networks to deliver goods to their final consumers – will this be enough? In this webinar, we take a look at the different transportation bottlenecks which remain a serious problem to global supply chains.

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

  • APAC – Monday 10th January | 10:00 HKT
  • EMEA – Monday 10th January | 10:00 GMT
  • Americas – Monday 10th January | 16:00 EST

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.
