[Webinar] Frontier markets are still a buy

The gradual return to pre-pandemic levels has marked a pause, but we think there is still value in high-yield sovereign bonds. We examine a set of frontier markets which are particularly attractive, including Egypt, Sri Lanka, and Argentina. In Africa, the post-Covid environment has intensified the pressure on public finances; we focus our attention on Ghana and Angola, both countries are facing a defining moment for their economic policies.

We will be repeating the same webinar to cater for the difference in time zones between APAC, EMEA and the Americas:

  • APAC - Tuesday 24th August | 10:00 HKT
  • EMEA - Tuesday 24th August | 10:00 BST
  • Americas - Tuesday 24th August | 16:00 EDT
