This is the latest monthly update on Emerging Markets Bond. It provides a review of the market and the latest outlook for the sector. View for more details.

Key Highlights  


  • The minutes of the Federal Reserve April policy meeting dealt the market a surprise when they were released in May by indicating that a rate hike is likely before Q4 if current growth and inflation trends persist.
  • We participated in some new issues in May and tendered the Slovenia bonds which the issuer was buying back at attractive levels. We expect market liquidity to be thin over the summer months.
  • In the absence of negative surprises from China or on the inflation front in the US, we expect this favourable environment for emerging market hard currency bonds to remain in place.
