The COVID-19 crisis is hitting emerging economies more than developed countries. Beyond the immediate health and economic emergency, the pandemic will take a toll on countries that are heavily reliant on commodity exports, global trade, tourism and external financing. This webinar will look at the consequences for emerging market credit risk, the opportunities for a ‘greener, smarter and fairer’ recovery – as proposed by the IMF – and what role sovereign bondholders can play.

Speakers:

Kevin Daly, Investment Director Emerging Market Debt, Aberdeen Standard Investments

Fabio Massimo Natalucci, Deputy Director, Monetary and Capital Markets, International Monetary Fund (IMF)

Frank Gill, Senior Director, Sovereigns and International Public Finance EMEA, S&P Global Ratings

Moderated by: Carmen Nuzzo, Head of Fixed Income, PRI
