    EM Ex-China Opportunities: Friendshoring, Demographics, and More!

    Jun 6, 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM (ET)
    EM Ex-China Opportunities: Friendshoring, Demographics, and More! Thursday June 6th 11:00 AM EST Webinar Eligible for 1.5 CE Credits! Register via the link below! In a world where aging demographics are shifting economic tides, there are complex implications that the "silver wave" is having on global trade and investment. As the developed West grays with its retiring boomers, many emerging markets (EM), brimming with youthful vigor and increasing productivity, are poised to claim their seat at the table, turning decades of trade dynamics on their head. This monumental shift has many investment implications, and will challenge our commonly held global economic assumptions to ensure our portfolios are set to perform in times ahead. It's a message to investors and policymakers alike: the future belongs to those who understand and adapt to these changing tides, where emerging markets emerge not just as factories of the world, but as its new economic powerhouses.
