Emerging market bonds are surprisingly resilient

Emerging market investors need steady nerves these days. The war in Ukraine has significantly increased uncertainty in some markets and increased volatility.

Absalon Capital

Emerging market bonds deliver attractive returns

The Danish fund boutique Absalon Capital has a clear focus: corporate bonds.

In Universal Investment's ChampionsView series, fund manager Sune Jensen talks about the investment philosophy of Absalon Capital and why he believes in corporate bonds from emerging markets despite Trump and the strong US dollar and why these could increasingly decouple from government bonds.
