Emerging Markets Debt

Our Emerging Markets Debt (EMD) team exercises a robust, consistent and collaborative investment process with the aim of achieving superior risk-adjusted returns over the longer-term.

Our philosophy

We believe fixed income markets accurately reflect the fundamental bond values over the long-term, but over the short-term, markets are less efficient.

  • EMD has evolved into a highly complex and dispersed asset class requiring specialised resources to understand where risk may be mispriced
  • A focus on fundamentals - with an eye on valuations and market technicals - is critical to managing EMD risk-return trade offs successfully

HSBC strengths

  • We deliver access to local market insights from our on-the-ground network of credit analysts and investment professionals across the world
  • One of the longest track records in the EMD universe, dating back to 1998
  • A full suite of EMD investment capabilities across hard currency sovereign, quasi-sovereign and corporate bonds as well as local currencies and local rates
  • An EMD Total Return strategy which leverages the best opportunities across the EMD universe and aims to deliver strong risk-adjusted returns while minimising drawdowns

Risk Warning
The value of investments and any income from them can go down as well as up and investors may not get back the amount originally invested. The value of the underlying assets is strongly affected by interest rate fluctuations and by changes in the credit ratings of the underlying issuer of the assets.
