In the latest Interactive Financial Adviser debate, our panelists from Insight Investment, Standard & Poor's and Western Asset discussed emerging market debt.
With the global economy in a state of flux, cautious investors are looking for ways to invest with less risk. Emerging market debt has held up relatively well during the recent market turbulence. The impact of interest rate hikes on bond yields may yet affect returns from emerging market debt, but the asset class remains a compelling investment opportunity.
