Value investing also works in hard currency EM corporate credit markets

By The Corporate Credit Team

In our post last week, we showed how a value approach in Global High Yield continued to deliver, this week we show how our value approach worked in our EM Corporate Debt strategy during 2021.

A few things to note about the performance

  • The value approach works in EM Corp Debt, just as it does in Global HY
  • Continued outperformance in 2021 despite macro headwinds (China, Ukraine, Turkey, Chile)
  • Focus on attractive opportunities, not index weight
  • Invest with conviction in strong companies in out of favour countries
  • We do not invest relative to an index - following an index rarely produces outperformance
  • Same team and strategy for past 12 years
  • Selectively invest in undervalued, low leveraged credits = higher yield/lower defaults
  • In 2022 investors should remain active, unconstrained and value focused
