Overview

Emerging market economies have been hit by pandemic-related lockdowns, capital outflows, reduced demand for exports, a commodity price shock, and the global disruption of supply chains. Policy makers have responded with aggressive approaches and new tools; signs that these programs are effective suggest that emerging market economies could be more resilient than their developed counterparts burdened with higher debt levels, aging demographics, and deflationary pressures.

Yusko will discuss places where investors will not just survive, but thrive in a post-pandemic world — all roads lead to emerging markets when searching for alpha in the New Abnormal.
