Emerging Markets – Short Duration

The Emerging Markets Short Duration Strategy seeks to protect capital and generate attractive returns. The strategy generates value through Muzinich’s bottom up investment process, rooted in internal credit research, which is conducted by an experienced investment team. The strategy mainly invests in emerging markets (Asia, Africa, Latin America and certain parts of Europe) but, to a lesser extent, may also invest in European and North American companies with emerging market exposure.

We believe this strategy offers an attractive, risk-adjusted investment opportunity.

  • A focus on short-term debt can capture the potential of emerging markets while dampening volatility.
  • Short-dated emerging markets bonds can often provide an attractive yield per unit of duration.
  • Active short-dated emerging market managers may add significant alpha given the divergence in returns among countries
