Past EMG events

  • Emerging Markets in a Globalising World – Wednesday 24th November 2021 
    Speakers: Dr Jonathan Ostry, Deputy Director of the Asia and Pacific Department at the IMF; Geert Bekaert, Professor of Finance, Graduate School of Business, Columbia University

Jonathan gave an overview of the achievements of EMG and suggested a research agenda for Emerging Markets based on his experience at the IMF. Geert talked about whether the emerging markets can still be differentiated from developed markets, constituting a separate asset class in the current globalised world; what other emerging market asset classes are available to global investors beyond equities, such as currencies and corporate bonds with implications for portfolio diversification.

Furthermore; the proceedings have been recorded. You can approach Professor Phylaktis if you would like the link to the recorded proceedings.
