Episode 6: Emerging market debt post-Covid
Peter Becker
Investment Director

The hunt for yield has made emerging market debt (EMD) an attractive asset class, even if its performance in 2021 wasn’t remarkable. The market is mature and in some parts highly liquid, with local currency bonds now accounting for the bulk. In a plea for active management and fundamental research into issuers, Capital Group Investment Director Peter Becker takes listeners through the EMD market post-COVID-19: where are the opportunities? Where does he see growth? And which countries remain vulnerable?
