Broad and deep research

Our experienced team of dedicated emerging markets fixed income investors and credit analysts generates ratings on over 80 emerging countries and covers nearly 400 emerging corporate issuers.

Global lens

We believe that taking a global perspective is critical when investing in emerging markets. Strong connections between emerging and developed markets mean that outside events can often be big drivers of emerging markets’ performance.


Collaboration between colleagues specialising in equities, fixed income, commodities, currencies, macroeconomics and ESG provides global context and helps our investors build a well-rounded picture of the emerging markets fixed income landscape. To form a holistic view of emerging markets issuers, our credit and equity analysts often have joint meetings with company management teams and key policymakers.
