Emerging Market Debt Fund Manager, Abdallah Guezour, outlines his expectations for the year ahead in global fixed income markets:
- There’s a bright outlook for this sector with pockets of value starting to appear, whilst withdrawal of capital and government elections in emerging markets have improved the policy frameworks and macroeconomic vulnerabilities such as high inflation and large current account deficits have been contained
- Unfortunately thought there is a cloud on the horizon in the shape of China's deteriorating growth trajectory, with a high risk of credit and investment excesses accumulated in recent years unravelling
- This cloud has the potential to become rainy with tightening global financial liquidity as the strong US dollar and the Fed's commitment to normalise monetary policy could accelerate the capital withdrawal from emerging bond markets.
