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.

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.
