The EMD Indicator provides an overview of our positioning in a selection of countries, currencies and sectors. The June edition is now available here.
Environmental risk and the role of sovereign debt investors.
Weaker export and manufacturing data continues to support our underweight currency positions in the more open economies of Taiwan and Malaysia. And we recently initiated an underweight position in the Korean won.
In Chile we have shifted to an overweight position now that the currency is offering value and it has moved to the top of our trading range.
We continue to be overweight Russia. The central bank reduced rates and indicated that cuts could continue. We like the long-term fundamental outlook for this economy, especially inflation.
Emerging market: These markets carry a higher risk of financial loss than more developed markets as they may have less developed legal, political, economic or other systems.
Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future results and all investments carry the risk of capital loss.
