How emerging markets are dealing with higher US Treasury yields

How emerging markets are dealing with higher US Treasury yields

The recent rise, through 3%, and to the highest level since 2013, has triggered a bit of a sell-off in emerging market assets. We’re thinking that US Treasury yields from here stabilise or they rise only gradually, and this’ll allow emerging market asset prices to go up again.


  • Emerging market growth and global growth are doing very well (The IMF forecast that emerging market growth in this year and next year will be around 4.9%, and global growth will be around 3.9%. )
  • We still have decent yield pick-up over the US (3% in US yields, but 6% on average in emerging market government bonds dollar)

Spotlight - Energy sector: outperformance lies ahead

Having ended 2017 as one of the worst performing global sectors, sustained outperformance lies ahead for energy stocks in 2018. The underlying crude oil market is now undersupplied while inventory levels have fallen sharply. These supply-demand and inventory dynamics have historically translated into improving corporate profitability over the coming 12-24 months.
