EM Corporate debt launch dates

Our emerging corporate debt capabilities

Our team is made up of 9 investment professionals with an average 18 years’ experience and combines diverse backgrounds, languages and local knowledge1. They are located across London and Singapore. This provides a local perspective and allows them to respond to market events in real time. 

The team also sources investment ideas from the firm’s Emerging Sovereign Debt, Emerging Equities and Greater China Debt teams, as well as the developed market fixed income group. It also benefits from the insight of the firm's Economic Analysis team and Strategy Unit (PSU), which support all investment teams.

Our emerging corporate bonds approach

We follow a primarily bottom-up approach, which is complemented by a top-down portfolio review to determine overall portfolio risk. We aim to build diversified portfolios to spread risk and maximise opportunity.

Chinese local currency debt

We launched our first single-country strategy, Chinese Local Currency Debt, in March 2015. The team invests predominantly in onshore Chinese bonds from both government and corporate issuers. The portfolio is actively managed and places equal emphasis on top-down assessment of the macro environment and bottom-up credit selection.

China is the world's third largest bond market and offers investors attractive yields and the potential for long-term currency appreciation.

Cary Yeung, Head of Greater China Debt
The strategy is managed by a team based in Hong Kong and benefits from the firm’s wider investment and operational infrastructure.
