Our first emerging markets debt investments were back in 1988 at the birth of the asset class. Today, the diverse opportunity set is made up of sovereign and corporate issuers across more than 60 countries.
While emerging markets are often treated as a homogeneous group, we take a different view and believe that understanding the differences across this diverse opportunity set is key to investment success.

As emerging markets mature, it opens up the potential for these countries to issue local currency debt. Structural currency appreciation and high real yields could offer an attractive risk-reward trade-off.

Additional information on our approach to emerging markets debt
Emerging markets debt has broadened and matured significantly over the last few decades. As the asset class developed, issuance has increased, and liquidity therefore improved.
By investing broadly, with an active approach, we can diversify currency, curve and maturity risk within local currency debt, and separate out dollar duration risk from credit risk within hard currency.
As markets continue to be volatile, your clients may be looking for a strategy that could navigate through market uncertainties. With Capital Group, benefit from:
A broad, multi-faceted approach able to quickly adapt to an evolving environment
Our bottom-up investment process, which assesses each investment opportunity on an individual basis
Investment team stability and experience during periods of heightened geopolitical risk and market volatility
Active approach that seeks to capture the full potential of an evolving market
Our active approach provides access to a wide source of returns, through exposure to some of the best opportunities outside of the index’s universe, capturing multiple markets and helping to mitigate risk.
Extensive experience in uncertain times
Three decades of emerging markets debt investment experience leaves Capital Group well placed to navigate today’s heightened geopolitical risk and market volatility. Benefit from investment team stability, experience through crises and a long-term view.
With an established bottom-up approach to security selection, the portfolios seek to drive consistent outcomes for investors. Applying the same rigorous analysis across sovereigns and corporates in emerging markets, these diverse portfolios aim to minimise volatility.
Multi-level risk management
We strive to ensure our bond portfolios deliver predictable outcomes. To this end, an independent risk team is integrated within the investment process, assessing investment, operational and strategy-level risks, and prepares scenario analysis to inform portfolio construction.
Taking the long view
We base our investment decisions on a long-term perspective, aligning our goals with the interests of our clients. Superior, long-term returns are our goal. The investment teams are rewarded for their results, not the level of assets they manage.
Breadth of experience
Our process enables individual investment professionals to act on their highest convictions while limiting the risk associated with isolated decision-making. We draw on their diverse experience to build the portfolio.
Deep, fundamental research
Few firms can match the scale and scope of our proprietary research. Investment analysts conduct thousands of research visits globally every year. This research is then combined with comprehensive macro analysis. This approach has been essential to the results we have delivered to our investors.
Capital Group manages equity assets through three investment groups. These groups make investment and proxy voting decisions independently. Fixed income investment professionals provide fixed income research and investment management across the Capital organisation; however, for securities with equity characteristics, they act solely on behalf of one of the three equity investment groups.

Risk factors you should consider before investing:
This material is not intended to provide investment advice or be considered a personal recommendation.
The value of investments and income from them can go down as well as up and you may lose some or all of your initial investment.
Past results are not a guide to future results.
If the currency in which you invest strengthens against the currency in which the underlying investments of the fund are made, the value of your investment will decrease. Currency hedging seeks to limit this, but there is no guarantee that hedging will be totally successful.
Depending on the strategy, risks may be associated with investing in fixed income, derivatives, emerging markets and/or high-yield securities; emerging markets are volatile and may suffer from liquidity problems.
