Event Description

Fueled by a combination of domestic wealth generation and foreign investment, the growth of Asia’s bond markets is one of the region’s most important and remarkable economic developments of the last decade. The region’s significant structural reforms have led to steady upgrades in Asia’s sovereign credit ratings and bond markets have experienced improvements in liquidity, transparency and diversification. The presentation will discuss how Asia bond exposure can help to diversify fixed income portfolios as well as the region’s fixed income return drivers: credit, currencies and interest rates.
