About This Webinar

Emerging markets (EM) were certainly in vogue during the latter part of 2020, with EM assets enjoying broad inflows and generally positive performance. However, 2021 has seen some signs of divergence in the performance of EM assets, particularly between currencies. Given the crucial role that currencies play in overall EM asset performance, giving full consideration to the EMFX component of a portfolio is essential. Join Record Currency Management’s Torrie Callander, Client Team Director, and Andrew Bloomfield, Head of Economic Research, for an insightful discussion covering the many considerations that investors face when dealing with emerging market currencies.
