Fixed Income

The case for a core allocation to emerging market debt

A commonly held, but misplaced, belief that emerging market debt (EMD) is an obscure, risky, outpost of the fixed income universe has resulted in it being under-represented in many portfolios. Within each category (hard or local currency EMD), however, it has qualities that are similar to, or even better than, other core fixed income allocations.
