Profile

The Structural Investment Case for EM Local Currency Bonds

  • Emerging market and Frontier countries generally belongs to the low or middle income parts of the World when measured on GDP per capita.
     
  • Because these countries typically have growing populations and lower capital bases compared to high income countries they tend to grow structurally higher causing their income to converge towards that of more developed countries.
     
  • The current low-yield environment in the developed world amplifies this structural effect. It creates a need for investor diversification that will support long-term demand for emerging debt assets.
     
  • Except for some notable exceptions, emerging market countries are generally fundamentally in good shape with falling levels of inflation, higher credit ratings and improved institutions such as independent central banks.
     
  • In the recent decade, the number of countries with sufficiently developed market structures to open up local currency based debt issues have increased. This gives rise to a new breed of local institutional investors that increase liquidity and offer states an opportunity to fund their budgets without the FX risk associated with USD or EUR denominated debt.
     
  • However, fragile institutions and unsustainable conduct of government can still cause risks to investors and it is therefore Sydinvest considers a significant amount of data on Environmental (E), Social (S) and governance (G) factors (ESG) when constructing the portfolios.
     
  • The emerging debt asset class has more than 18 trillion USD in market cap, but it still only count for approximately 20% of the world’s total GDP thus far below levels found in the developed markets. At the same time, roughly 70% or more of the World’s populations live in the 80 most common emerging market countries. Since only the countries with sufficient institutional strength can issue local currency debt, the case for market expansion and long-term investment opportunities are indeed vast and well founded.

The Profile for Sydinvest EM Local Currency Bonds

  • The fund invest in local currency sovereign bonds issued from emerging market and frontier countries. The objective is to provide investors with excess returns to the benchmark through active portfolio management.
     
  • The fund’s investment philosophy considers that a number of risk premiums emerge from the fundamental and structural case of emerging market convergence.
     
  • Most prominently, the lower level of human development and income cause institutional and market risks that increase the country risk premium. This premium can typically be expressed through inflation risk, trade and current account balance risk as well as government budget funding risk. A thorough evaluation of the growth and debt payment dynamics as well as the sustainability of government  is conducted to reveal such opportunities.
     
  • Secondly, the lower market cap of emerging debt issues creates liquidity premiums that can be revealed through a systematic relative value analysis across the investor base, the issuer characteristics and the issuer quality.
     
  • The ongoing dynamics of these risk premiums cause market prices to deviate from their long term fair values. It implies that each emerging market country carries a unique story and that active management is the only way for investors to unlock the value of these opportunities.
     
  • Sydinvest offers investors its decade-long experience of investing into hard and local currency emerging markets with an investment process built a small yet highly efficient and agile team.
