Emerging Markets in 2021: The Case for Increasing Exposure Now
The weak dollar, low-interest rates, and accelerating growth—these are just three of an array of factors that argue in favor of increasing your clients exposure to emerging markets.
Join us Wednesday, March 10, for a review of EM investment opportunities. Headlining our webcast panel will be Calamos Founder, Chairman, and Global Chief Investment Officer John P. Calamos, Sr. Joining John will be:
- Nick Niziolek, CFA, Co-CIO, Head of International and Global Strategies, Senior Co-Portfolio Manager
- Todd Speed, CFA, Senior Vice President, Portfolio Specialist
In addition to covering secular growth themes (monetary and fiscal stimulus, China’s global leadership, growth and inflation expectations, the weaker dollar, and strengthening liquidity), you’ll hear the Calamos’ take on several thematic tailwinds driving the EM opportunity, including:
- EM technology
- Global payments ecosystem
We’ll conclude our discussion with a review of the differentiated approach of Calamos Evolving World Growth Fund (CNWIX), which has successfully pursued a favorable risk/reward skew through bottom-up security selection, top-down thematic analysis, and opportunistic use of less-well-known asset classes, such as convertible securities.
