Global Emerging Markets update: March 2020

In this webinar Kunjal Gala, Co-Portfolio Manager of Global Emerging Markets, provides an update on the strategy's position and assess the disruptions COVID-19 has had on emerging markets (EMs).

Kunjal focuses on the medium to long term prospects for EMs and reassures us that these have not changed for the team. The rising capitalisation of EMs is shown through three factors which are all growth drivers. The growing middle-class population, the recent development of a more digitalised economy and the multiplication of infrastructure spend will likely insure productivity and a better position for EMs after this health-crisis.
