Reputation and sustainability: Challenges for EM fiscal policies

Our analysis will challenge preconceptions on which EM governments can be trusted to pursue sufficient fiscal adjustment. Covid-19 will leave a legacy of higher debt stocks, and announced fiscal adjustment paths vary in ambition. We demonstrate which EMs will suffer most under a global stagflation shock, and reveal which deserve the best and worst reputation for sticking to fiscal targets over the last decade.

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 – Thursday 1st July | 10:00 HKT
  • EMEA – Thursday 1st July | 10:00 BST
  • Americas – Thursday 1st July | 16:00 EDT

In this webinar we will discuss the outlook for construction activity in Asia including the risks and implications of increasing construction costs.

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.
