Is 2019 the Year for Emerging Markets and China?

ORIGINAL AIR Date:12/12/18

Start Time:ON DEMAND

Duration:59 MINUTES


This year, emerging market (EM) assets have witnessed a large sell-off due to many factors, such as the growing strength of the dollar, trade war tensions and their impact on the global economy. However, Chinese markets were spared the worst of the sell-offs, and have shown more resilience than smaller EM countries. Some EM analysts see the dip as a major investment opportunity, and many exchange-traded fund investors continue to invest in the developing economies.

How can investors position themselves to access emerging markets and China? This webcast will feature experts from DWS and BNY Mellon on ways to access this part of the investment landscape.

Dave Nadig, managing director of ETF.com, sits down with Luke Oliver, head of U.S. ETF Capital Markets for Xtrackers ETFs at DWS, and Bob Humbert, director of ETF Strategy and Solutions for BNY Mellon to get their insights into:
• Recent trends in emerging markets and China
• Is now the time to make a strategic allocation to emerging markets?
• Should China be viewed independently of emerging markets?
• Keys to successfully trading in emerging markets and China with ETFs
