China’s transition boosts emerging markets

China’s transition boosts emerging markets

What you need to know about emerging markets

Two major sources of pressure on emerging markets – the generalised dollar uptrend and lower commodity prices – have dissipated, contributing to the return of portfolio investments to these markets.
Emerging markets' economic fundamentals improved over the course of last year with more clarity on Chinese policy, evidence of better growth, and economic rebalancing elsewhere.
As a result, both bond and equity markets in emerging countries performed well last year, and we expect them to continue to outperform in the near future.
China in focus

China’s economic transition is well under way, as highlighted by the increasing share of domestic consumption and services in the overall economy. Few investors continue to fear a hard landing, but the size of the country’s debt is a cause for concern.

We expect the government to continue on the path of reforms and to rein in any risk of a banking crisis. This new economy is creating many investment opportunities as well as some challenges in Chinese fixed income and equity markets.
