Webinar: 2021 Emerging Markets Outlook


This Wednesday, May 5th, 2021 at 11:00 am, Integrity Research Associates will host the next in its series of live ResearchInsights webinars featuring three highly regarded independent emerging markets analysts to discuss the 2021 Emerging Markets Outlook, and reveal a few favorite trading ideas within the sector that are likely to be profitable over the coming year.   

This Week’s 2021 Emerging Markets Outlook

Historically, those betting on the emerging markets (EMs) to outperform the domestic US markets have often been disappointed.  Despite strong growth and supportive demographic and consumer trends, EM equity returns have only averaged +3.6% per year from 2010 to 2019.  However, 2020 was different as the MSCI Emerging Markets Index outperformed the S&P 500 for the first time since 2017 (EM gained +18.5% versus the S&P 500’s +18.4%).     

So was 2020 an anomaly, or was it the start of a longer period of outperformance for the emerging markets?  On Wednesday, May 5th, 2021 a panel of three experienced independent emerging markets analysts will discuss the 2021 Emerging Markets Outlook, and will highlight the regions and investment opportunities that are most likely to outperform in 2021.  A few of the topics this panel of analysts will address include:

  • Which Emerging Market countries that performed well during the COVID pandemic are most likely to experience a correction in 2021?
  • During 2020, EM debt issuance was quite strong.  How should EM bonds fare in 2021, and what are likely to be the key drivers of these markets?
  • Emerging Market equities appear to be expensive on a PE basis.  Why do you believe these stocks will be able to sustain their rich valuations?
  • Can the Emerging Markets continue the strong performance they experienced in 2020 through 2021?  Why or why not?
  • Emerging market economies are a diverse bunch. As markets anticipate a global recovery, are there certain economies that are well-positioned to outperform?
  • What is the biggest surprise that Emerging Market investors are likely to experience as the global recovery from COVID-19 continues in 2021?
