Emerging market bonds face unshocking shock

By Edwin Gutierrez, Head of Emerging Market Sovereign Debt, Aberdeen

The Wall Street Crash was a shock. On a less spectacular level — except to the dazed and confused Brazilians — was the 7-1 semi-final loss that knocked Latin America’s largest nation out of the soccer World Cup of 2014. Compared with these, the widely predicted first US rate rise — expected to happen by the end of the year — is a decidedly unshocking shock. Contrary to some warnings, investors in emerging market bonds certainly shouldn’t worry about it too much — although they shouldn’t be complacent either.

(Another) downhill stroll — retirement planning

A report published this morning by the CIPD (CIPD Employee Outlook March 2015) provides yet more interesting data to the changing landscape of retirement planning. It should be remembered that we are in a period of genuine flux here given that the default retirement age was scrapped three years ago, and new pension freedoms come online in April. Both of these alterations will have a huge impact on how employees plan for their retirement.
