When will supply chain pain recede, and what lessons can businesses learn?

Topic: After an initial strong recovery from the pandemic, global industry has been hamstrung by supply chain disruptions even as demand remains robust. It currently seems that as soon as one bottleneck on production is relieved, another appears. How are these inter-related disruptions cascading? Is there any relief in sight? This webinar will seek to provide clarity into these and other important questions, featuring the latest economic updates, qualitative insight from recent executive interviews, and short- and long-term takeaways and solutions for executives.

Mid-year high convictions in Emerging Markets Assets

The global context is that central banks continue to focus almost entirely on inflation and tight policy will become a downside risk for global and EM activity. We are below consensus on EM growth in 2024. We see impetus running out of steam in most EM regions, and we are generally optimistic on EM disinflation, more so in LatAm than CEE. We remain neutral on EM FX. Fed-related undershoots are balanced by risks of drawdowns driven by spells of wider rate differentials. We see opportunities in local currency debt in LatAm after April’s EM-wide sell-off; and we still find long-term valuation metrics compelling. Mexican and Turkish rates appear attractive. Tight valuations weight on sovereign credit but we see good opportunities, particularly in Colombia and Angola.
