With many pension funds now closely examining the asset class, now is an important time to make sure that investors are aware of the full breadth of opportunities available and how to manage the associated risks with investing in emerging markets.Over the course of the morning, we will bring together four world-class managers to share their latest insights and expertise on investing in emerging markets. Attendees will have the chance to ask questions and discuss the topics further in intimate, round-table sessions.

Rotating Investment Masterclass I: Is now the time investors should increase their GEM value exposure? | Eastspring Investments
Eastspring Investments’ Sam Bentley will be introducing their successful valuation driven investment approach to investing in global emerging market (GEM) equities. Post GFC we have seen investors build a substantial bias towards increasingly expensive quality and growth stocks in their GEM equity portfolios which a GEM Value exposure will help mitigate. Sam will discuss Eastspring’s approach to navigating the often ignored GEM value space including how they identify attractively valued companies, their reliance on deep fundamental research and their integrated approach to considering ESG factors.
Rotating Investment Masterclass II: Navigating Change in Emerging Markets | Michael Levy, Co-Head Emerging Equities Team | Barings Asset Management
As emerging market economies continue to transform at a rapid pace with consumption and services continuing to replace the traditional growth drivers of investment and manufacturing. Simultaneously, the push for greater resource efficiencies, both natural and financial, has served to raise the overall levels of competitiveness, productivity and sustainability. Although this economic transformation has served to create numerous opportunities, and should continue to do so in the future, superior company selection remains key. In this session, the speaker will explain how one could de risk investing in emerging market opportunities, focusing on: • How do we identify and isolate the characteristics of the likely winning companies • How can one evaluate the opportunity • How does ESG play a role • How can we manage risk?
