Drop-In: Where do EM sovereign debt risks lie?

17 May, 2022

Geopolitical instability, a hawkish Fed, and the dollar on a tear – these are classic ingredients for emerging market debt crises. So should investors brace for a repeat of the kind of ructions that swept EMs in the 1980s and 1990s? Join economists from our Emerging Markets service for this special 20-minute briefing about sovereign debt risks: where they lie, how bad they could get and how far they could spread. The team will answer your questions as they address key takeaways from their recent report (‘EM sovereign debt – where do the risks lie’), including:

  • Which economies are most vulnerable to a sovereign debt crisis;
  • How far individual crises could spread to affect other EM sovereigns;
  • Which debt markets should come through the current turmoil unscathed.
